On September 17th, we’re collaborating with WDET 101.9 FM’s Question of the Day to kick off a week of you telling us what we need to know about this location, in order to inform our mobile audio tour. This week we’re asking you: “What stories have you heard about what it was like to work at the Highland Park Ford Plant?”
Only responses left on Monday, September 17th may be heard on WDET but really we want to hear from you up until Sunday, September 23rd, 2012. Your responses will help us make sure we’re getting the whole story on Highland Park Ford Plant as we put together the audio script for our tour. Here are a few different ways you can share with us, the stories you’ve heard about the plant:
Leave us a voicemail
Call (951) 262-3438 to leave us a voicemail. It’s just a weird area code because we got the number on the internet. There is no fee for you to call and it should just take you a minute to leave your message.
Record your message using the SoundCloud website
If you don’t have one already, take a quick second to set up a free SoundCloud account, then come back to here and click on this link. Make sure you have the most recent Flash and that you enable your computer’s microphone when prompted. Press the ‘Record’ button and respond to one or more of our prompts. If you don’t like your recording, you’ll have a chance to redo it as many times as you need. Once satisfied, upload your response on the following page: http://soundcloud.com/groups/tell-us-about-the-highland-park-ford-plant/dropbox
Record your message using the SoundCloud App
Sometimes its easier to record using the SoundCloud App on a smartphone than it is to record on a computer. If you haven’t already, you must first download the SoundCloud App onto your phone. It’s free and worth it. Then open up the App and click on the orange “REC” circle on the bottom menu bar. Then hit the orange “REC” button that pops up in the middle of your screen to start recording. To stop recording, press it again. If you don’t like what you’ve recorded, press “Reset” and try it again. Once satisfied, press “Save.”
Now you might actually want to login to SoundCloud on a computer. Then come back to this page and click on this link. Once there, click on the blue link underneath the “Choose File” button that says, “Select an Already Uploaded File.” A list of files you’ve already uploaded to SoundCloud will pop up. Find the one you just recorded on your App.
Should be self explanatory.
NOTE: Responses left on Monday, September 17th only may be broadcast on 101.9 FM WDET. Responses left on any other date may still be broadcast, podcast, used in an installation, or shared through social network sites. By participating, you’re saying that you’re okay with that.
