CONCLUSION
%he internship at 3adio+-@ 4) 5:#6 was a fulfilling e9perience where I was able to
put the knowledge gained to practice# %his helped me in the process of building in the
necessary skills that a 3adio (roducer has to inculcate#
I was really lucky to ha"e been in"ol"ed in some ma8or e"ents like @,Bone, 3icky
(onting and the Speed Jamming# +n the process I did commit many mistakes, but it is
all a learning e9perience#
I was also gi"en lot of responsibility and was asked to manage a ma8or promo of the
2oca 2ola Speed Jamming all by myself and my Super"isor was quite happy with my
efforts#
;hen my Super"isor addressed me on my last day of the internship, he ga"e me a
score of 0/ on 0/# %hey ha"e promised me that in the future if there are any
requirements by the organiBation, I will be considered as their first choice#
I would like to say that this stint with 3adio+-@ as one of the most memorable days
of my life and ha"e a larger family#
