At 10 a.m. August 19, more than 400 aspiring and experienced radio producers from around the world took part in our fifth annual 24-hour Radio Race. In the end, they delivered 136 short stories in a single day. The pieces were judged on creativity, storytelling, technical skill and incorporation of the theme: “Down For Whatever.”As soon as they heard the theme, Team Wilson Sayre knew who to call: their neighbor Chris, who’s always up to something crazy. They put their story entirely into his hands.
What do Russian spies, underground tunnels and the Devil’s Triangle all have in common? They make for great radio. And they’re all part of KCRW’s 5th Annual 24-Hour Radio Race! More than 400 people from seven countries participated to make over 130 short radio stories in a single day. The theme this time around was “Down For Whatever.” Each of the producers interpreted that in a different way to tell compelling stories about finding love, overcoming fear and, well, eating weird stuff.
Dancing makes me feel alive, but there's nothing worse than a teacher yelling "WHO ARE YOU AUDITIONING FOR?" when all I want to do is let loose and experience an invigorating work out. I've danced my whole life but I'm not trying to be cast in a music video. When I go to a cardio class in L.A., I'm really just looking for a no-judgment zone that leaves me with a confidence boost *and* dripping in sweat.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
