Transcript: Popular Music on Both Sides Messages in Propaganda Though the Allies and Axis typically listened to different styles of music, one particular number become popular with both sides. “Lili Marlene”, a ballet originally written by Hans Leip, a German soldier, and Norbert Schultze, became well known on all fronts of the war. An English and French version were created in 1943. Famous Propaganda Stations The Berlin Olympics, opening ceremony. On the opposite side, a different type of propaganda was used by the British, known as “black propaganda”. The most prominent use of black propaganda was by Gustav Siegfried Eins, or Sefton Delmer. Delmer pretended to be a high ranking Nazi officer and a Hitler supporter in order to gain popularity. He went by the name “Der Chef” on air, and used his popularity to form the illusion of corruption within the Nazi leadership. He even faked his own assassination on air and created more stations. These included Soldatensender Calais, which broadcasted to German soldiers stationed in France, and Atlantiksender, which spread misinformation to German U-Boats. Works Cited Background Noise In the 1940s, radio became popular, especially in the United States. Americans relied on it for entertainment and World War II updates. Millions of people would tune it to radio shows at one time. Single advertisers sponsored whole shows on various topics, such as propaganda, mystery, westerns, soap operas, dramas, comedies, and more. The Lone Ranger was a popular show that aired for twenty-two years. The Jack Benny Program was another popular broadcast that aired for twenty-six years. Both of these shows switched from radio to television shows in the 1950s. Some of the biggest names on the radio during World War II were The Marx Brothers, Burns and Allen, Jack Benny, and Fred Allen. Types of Propaganda Hollywood stars did not go on the radio much at first because they thought people would not go to as many movies if they could hear the stars on the radio. There were shows about Hollywood gossip, like Louella Parsons and Walter Winchell, so people got their information from the gossip channels. Eventually, stars realized that if people heard movie previews, interviews, and reviews they would be more interested in going to see the movies. Millions for Defense and Treasury Star Parade were radio programs based totally on selling government war bonds. Popular Radio Programs Near the beginning of the war, in America, Jazz was reaching its peak. It had become so popular in Allied countries, that Germany banned the style with censorship laws. Germans turned to ballets, folk music, and patriotic songs, in hopes of helping the war efforts. As the end of the war drew closer, the popularity of large band music began to fade, as a style derived from Jazz rose known as “bebop”, while Blues began forming early stages of rock and roll. Different tactics were used in radio programs to get support for the war. Often times, Hollywood stars and famous athletes would promote war bonds through music and interviews. Meanwhile, anyone who ran a radio station would use positive propaganda to promote their country and military, or negative propaganda, to mock their enemies Another type of propaganda was known as "Black Propaganda". It was mainly used in World War II, where someone would broadcast in an enemy country, disguised as a supporter of that government. The goal was to create a negative image of the leaders or military. Radio propaganda was extremely influential during World War II, and a few stations stood out. On the Axis side, the station called Radio Tokyo became very well known. It was run by a group of women, all known by one name: Tokyo Rose. The most popular member was Iva Toguri, an American born woman who was stranded in Japan when the war started. Toguri had been visiting relatives in Japan, and was unable to travel back to her home when the US entered the war. She took up a job at Radio Tokyo, running “Zero Hour”, in which she mocked American soldiers. When the war was over, Toguri was accused of treason, but pardoned because no proof was supplied that she was revealing military secrets. Radio programs reminded people regularly to keep secrets of war and avoid discussing military tactics. They were also encouraged to grow their own food so that the government's food could be sent to the troops. Radio programs used negative propaganda to portray the enemy as evil. They also tried to persuade soldiers into enlisting. Addis, Cameron. "Berlin Olympics: World War II." World at War: Understanding Conflict and Society. ABC-CLIO, 2014. Web. 29 Mar. 2014.

Transcript: Cardioid Pattern Bidirectional Microphone In this image it show what microphone input looks like and what a line level input looks like, (line level is when you have instruments pluged in) Piezo (contact) Microphone When it comes choosing the right mic for the job, it's very important to know the characteristics of the mic(s) that you, might use. You can use an omni directional mic but they can pick up sounds from all directions. But do produce a nice natural sound so they're often used in studios. With a cardioid directional mic they pick up sounds from the front and they don't pick up sounds from the back. For example a SM58 mic has a cardioid polar pattern. So it's better for close up micing rather then disdant micing. I'd choose to use a condenser mic with a cardioid polar pattern because, a condenser mic can pick up high frequinies and the sound from vocals is at a high frequinsey. The closer a cardioid mic is the sound will be more bassier and the futher away it is the sound will be less bassier. A bidirectional mic is more sensitive Hypercodiod Microphone Omnidirectinal mics picks up sounds evenly from all over. Omni is another word for every/all. These are a very high quality microphones used in recording and broadcasting work. They are also sensitive to being broken. When you use a ribbon mic to record sounds and then play it back, the recorded sounds it sounds like the real sound you hear in nature. This is because ribbon mics can pick up the sounds we hear so the result of this is a natural and warm that other microphones don't provide. It's commenly used to record vocals in broadcasting work and it's used to record vocals in studio work. Ribbon mics are normally put in place so that they don't move. Due to them not being robust enougth if they were moved around a lot they'd get dammaged or worse they can break. Sensitivity- Low Robustness- Poor Sound Quality or frequency range- Excellent Affected by moisture- No Affected by movement- Poor Reliability- Good Cost- High A Cardioid Mic mainly picks up sound frequinceys from the front and a little bit from the sides. It doesn't however pick up sounds from the back. Unlike an omni mic the picks up sounds from all over. Hypercardioid/Supercardioid Pattern Scenario 3 Micing up a drum kit Scenario 2 micing up Vocals In order to mic up any instrument you need to find the sound, that sounds great live first before micing it up. You also need to think about what type mic you'll need to mic up the drum kit, fo exsample if you're micing up the kick drum you'll need a mic that'll pick up low frequinsies. So you would need a dynamic mic but you need to point it at the kick drum, so you need a dynamic with a cardioid polar pattern. For micing up the snare drum you'll use a dynamic mic with a cardioid pattern too. Because that mic would need to be pointed directley the snare drum. As for the symbals you need a mic that picks up high frequincey sounds so you'll need to use condenser mic with a cardioid polar pattern. Bidirectional or figure of 8 mics are highly sensitive so hey are able to pick up sound, from the front and back. But it does have low sensitivity when it comes to picking up sound from the sides. Cardioid Pattern Senerio 1: Micing up a guitar amp Dynamic microphones are widely used. In the sound reinforcement industry. It's suitable for hand held vocal use and the amplifying of drums and guitar amp etc. If you're recording a kick drum then you need to use a cardioid dynamic mic and when you're recording a snare drum you'd also need to use a cardioid dynamic mic. A cardioid mic will only pick up sound from the front and sides. Dynamics can also be used to record woodwind and brass instruments. If you need to record vocals. then you'd need to use a cardioid or a supercardioid dynamic mic. A cardioid or supercardiod will only pick up the vocals from the front. So in conclusion dynamic mics are a good all rounder meaning they are capable of recording anything your heart desires. Sensitivity- Medium Robustness- Good Sound quality or frequency range- Good Affected by moisture- No Affected by movement- Usually Good Reliability- Good Cost- Rather High Example of a dynamic mic would be a SM58. Cardioid Microphone This image shows a microphone pluged into a mixing desk. Hypercardioid Pattern but a Supercardioid Pattern is near enougth the same. Piezo is a type of microphone that senses, vibrations from contact with solid objects. Sensitivity- This type of mic picks up vibrations from the object it's stuck on. Robustness- Between Low and High. Sound Quality or Frequency range- Gives a good sound quality. Affected by moisture- Medium Affected by movement- Ribbon Microphone Possiable Hazrads in a recording studio This type of mic is very directional and it removes sound mainly from the sides and back. This type of microphone is also known as a shotgun mic. It isolates sounds from a direction where there is a lot of noise. The Microphones I'll be talking about
