BALTIMORE

THE RISE OF CHARM CITY

Our Episode 6 Promo is here!

We don't always share our radio promos online, but this one is distinct enough that we thought it would be worthwhile to post here. Produced and edited by Ali Post, this 30-second spot uses sound we collected at Baltimore Penn Station, the lead site of our next episode. Amtrak employees were kind enough to give us a tour that included an escort to the platforms, where we recorded an incoming train, departing passengers, and a conductor who gave us an entirely ceremonial, "All aboard!" We also recorded one of Baltimore Penn Station's most distinct schedule announcers. Hers is the voice you hear at the end of the promo. 

Be sure to tune in next Friday, April 8 at 11:30 am ET during The Marc Steiner Show to hear Episode 6 of Baltimore: The Rise of Charm City. You can livestream the show at weaa.org or download it as a podcast later via Soundcloud, iTunes, Stitcher, or Acast.
