Make Your Own "I'm The Boss" Bumper! - Dennis

By now, you've probably heard of our new way of referring to KCCK donors: The Boss.

It's a light-hearted and hopefully fun way of reminding you that as a non-profit, KCCK runs on donations from people who want to support our jazz radio programming and jazz education programs.

In radio parlance, a quick recorded line that comes in between two songs is called a "bumper."

If you're a KCCK Boss, and we have not yet gotten a "Boss Bumper" from you; and you have a smartphone, you can make your own!

Here's how:

  • Open the Voice Recorder app on any IOS or Android phone or tablet.
  • Press Record and say the following into the phone's microphone (a hole or small grill on the bottom of the device).

"Hi, this is __________________________, and I'm The Boss here at KCCK! You can be the boss, too, when you invest in local jazz radio. Listen like a Boss and donate now at kcck.org"

  • Touch the Share button. Depending on your device, it could be one of the icons to the right, or the word "Share."
  • "Email" will be one of your share choices. Email the file to dennis@kcck.org.
  • That's it! I'll let you know that it arrived and will work.
 And thanks for being The Boss at KCCK!
