Hello everyone! I’m excited to announce the birth of RadioEdu, a project designed to introduce audio engineering and production to Baltimore City students. This blog will follow the progress of three extraordinary fifth graders from Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary School as they learn complex concepts on industry standard studio equipment. The students have limited access to computers, and we are working together two days a week. Each week will focus on one or more concepts and will have a ‘proof of concept’ project from the students. The emphasis is on project-based learning, and the students develop their skills through hands-on development and gain more autonomy as the semester progresses.
We hope that this pilot project is the first of many and that we are able to introduce this technology and skillset to many more schools and students in the future!

So, who remembers Danity Kane? The smoking hot girl group from the MTV hit reality show Making the Band with Hip-Hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs. The group hit stardom at the speed of light back in 2005 and then came crashing down abruptly in 2009—with all of the highs and lows in between being broadcast to the nation each week on MTV. The group was made up of five females– Dawn Richard, Aubrey O’Day, Aundrea Fimbres, Wanita “D.Woods” Woodgett and Shannon Bex– who fought their way to fame against dozens of other girls hoping for the spotlight. Four years on the top of the iTunes and Billboard Charts proved that the spotlight can be difficult to handle. In a heated episode of MTB Season 3, the members of Danity Kane went their separate ways. After about four years apart, the ladies of Danity Kane are back together and are better than ever!

It seems like 2013 has been the year of Justin Timberlake. With The 20/20 Experience hitting the top of every music chart ever created, The Legends of Summer Tour with Jay-Z selling out arenas across the country, and let’s not forget that killer VMA performance,
JT is unstoppable. But, just when you thought that was enough, he has released the highly anticipated 20/20 Experience 2 of 2. This album is very reminiscent of his NSYNC days. His “pop” foundation shines through in every song; including the slower ones like Amnesia. The heavy background vocals also contributes to the boy-band sound on this album. In true JT fashion, the album has only 11 tracks with only one song less than four minutes long. The last track “Not a Bad Thing” is 11 minutes and 28 seconds long. Justin Timberlake’s voice is just as smooth and incredible on this album as on any other album he has created in the past. The newlywed seems to still be using his marriage to actress Jessica Biel as inspiration with the love songs on this album. JT is, however, getting in touch with his inner bad boy with the language on this album. There are more expletives on this album than fans are used to hearing from America’s Prince of Pop. After listening to this album, there is no doubt that JT is hotter than ever! Tune in to A Double Dose of Entertainment on Fridays from 7-9pm to hear tracks from this album!
