One student was breaking a
strawberry box in his hands while
the other, with intense concentra
tion, stood crump'ing a piece of
cellophane. A short pause, then
the first student grabbed a po
tato and, with soul - splitting
groans, stabbed a knife into it.
But you, listening over your
radio, heard a door being crushed
in, fire cracking, and the poor,
trapped victim taking his own
life one minute before he was to
be burned to death.
Ingenious Devices
This is a typical example of
the ingenious devices used by the
sound crew in a radio station to
produce sounds over the air.
Some things sound the same
over the radio as they do in an
ordinary room, a door slamming,
a whistle, water being poured

Others, for instance the sound
of a submarine crashing into a
battleship under water, must be
imitated by objects altogether
The sound room of a radio sta
tion just before a broadcast us
ually resembles someone’s attic
collection of old junk. For a one
hour program, there are usually a
variety of sounds to be produced
which requires many strange
looking articles.
More Secrets
A squash is used for the sound
of a body falling; horses’ hooves
on turf are suggested by thump

boxes; the sound of rattling
skeletons is produced by b'.ocks

boxes, with gravel, bits of metal,
and broken glass in sealed com

noise of an auto crash.
These are some of the many
devices used to make the sounds
which accompany the daily radio
plays and serials.
The hardest sound to imitate is
that of a pistol shot. No effective
substitute could be found until
one of the mqre prominent gun

the barrel sealed, and a special
kind of bullet, that may be fired
in the broadcasting studio to give
the desired effect.
