Once again, this project is easily in my top 5 favourites. You've mentioned that the small town setting is a big part of the appeal; I'm hoping to see it emerge as almost it's own character as things move forward. The types of personalities that come out of the woodwork in small towns are often amazing and I hope to see you folks get a chance to explore them/show them to the world!

    All three people are very funny on their own, but from these little tidbits of them working together are fantastic. I'd like to see more of them on screen at the same time, and the setting of a go-nowhere radio station seems like a great place to do it in.

    ...Working together, I mean.

    Holding your show up in comparison to WKRP takes a lot of confidences, which is a must in. this type of competition. If the laughs you generate are commisserate with the your self-belief, you'll do fine!

Sure hope you get the chance to go further with this as you rise through the rounds to the top. Best of luck to you on the quest to the top, with Dead Air!

    Funny cast!! It takes extra talent to perform on radio, which I'm waiting to see if you will perform some more air time scenes, no visual props. Not that you have to, I am just curious about how you might do that. Lots of fun to be seen and heard here, best of luck.

    As a fellow Peterborough-based participant, I've been following this one all along and I'm pleased to see that the videos keep getting better. While I'm still not positive what the visual style of the actual show would be at this point, the characters have definitely started to emerge at this point -- and this particular video has a much more polished presentation. I hope the team makes it forward so they can continue on this trajectory and we can really see Dead Air come to life.

    I think the good thing about this project is that it creates an easy entry for various comical characters. I don't know if I would say that small town radio stations are where careers go to dye - but I do think they are where careers both start and end.

    I think the two lady characters are funny. I thought it was funny with it showing the ladies leaning into kiss until the microphone interrupted them. The male lead character is very realistic too. I like that the actor and actresses have real flaws. (Bad swearing etc.) Good luck with this week, you have all of my votes.

    The end of this video is so sexually explicit, between the pent up 'synergy' of the actors, the glimpse of the lead characters fascination for Flashdance and the climax of the misplaced "boom"... I'm out of breath. I expected comedy, but with this near pornographic extension... well just say I blew my 'vote wad' on the team at Dead Air.

    I have to admit that this is the first video I've seen from this group, and it didn't tell me very much. Still, this looks like the most familiar of the concepts out there, and resembles the type of programming already on the air as it is. This might be a case of people finding comfort in the familiar versus wanting something drastically different. I also feel as though this is a group of relatively established personalities, and one that would probably have the best shot at a pilot without the aid of this contest.

Second, we're unlike anything you've ever seen on TV. Ever. No, that's a lie. If you've seen good TV before, then we're like that. Third, you're adorable for thinking that we have any clout in the industry. We tried the "don't you know who I am" line. They said "Yes, that's why you can't come in".

    Once again, this project is easily in my top 5 favourites. You've mentioned that the small town setting is a big part of the appeal; I'm hoping to see it emerge as almost it's own character as things move forward. The types of personalities that come out of the woodwork in small towns are often amazing and I hope to see you folks get a chance to explore them/show them to the world!

I'd like to see more talk about what kind of content or story ideas that could come up in the show. Will it be like a funny Canadian Fraser? Or will there be more stuff going on than just a rehashing of stuff we've already seen?

It will include the in studio side of life, the office side of things, but will bring in the listeners and the town more as well. Life is small town radio is very different from big city, big budget broadcasting. It's ripe for the picking!
