Making a Bumper

A bumper is a short clip that can be up to 15 or 20 seconds long that introduces your show to listeners. It can include signature music (like a theme song) from your show or sound effects, but should always feature the DJ’s name, show name, and the name of the station.

Bumpers are useful for breaking up segments on your show or for following the best practice of reintroducing yourself or your show every 15 minutes or so while on air.
