About

My name is Crystal Genduso and I am voiceover actress and the producer of a children's public access show, called Bedtime Story, which was recently approved to air on RadioFairfax. It was originally conceived of in order to provide children, particularly ones who are blind, dyslexic, or whose parents are likewise disabled or illiterate, w/a bedtime story, but we believe everyone of all ages will enjoy the show. It features unadulterated fairy/folktales. These bear very little resemblance to the sanitized Disney versions of today. A narrator reads them aloud to listeners, like an audiobook.

Since its inception, the concept of Bedtime Story Broadcast has expanded to also provide creative people of all types and ages w/an audience w/which to showcase their talents. Together, we can come up w/opportunities for actors, animators, composers, graphic artists, illustrators, musicians, singers, writers, etc. Every aspect of this show is crowd sourced. The level of involvement is up to the individual. Please see the updates for other opportunities to participate in the project. You do not need to live anywhere near Virginia to volunteer.

Bedtime Story receives no promotional or financial support at all. Nor am I compensated for my community service. Currently, I have a cheap mic I use to record w/in my cramped closet, where there somethimes is an inexplicable hum emanating from the apartment below. So, I am seeking sponsorship to most importantly improve the sound quality for our listeners, especially considering that blind people have heightened hearing in absence of sight. We would gratefully accept even old equipment that would be a step up from my Blue Snowball. 

I, personally, have not had any success w/asking corporations to sponsor Bedtime Story Broadcast. I was even informed that we are just too insignificant by the one where my husband has worked w/for over 16 years. However, if you as an individual cannot personally afford to make a monetary contribution, I am hoping that maybe you can still aid us in finding funding by using some of your connections or influence at your workplace. We will acknowledge all contributors to our cause online and, depending on the donation, also on-air. For more information, I can be contacted at Crystal@BedtimeStory.com. Thank you for your consideration.

RadioFairfax is cablecast via Fairfax Public Access (FPS). Subscribers to Comcast, Cox, or Verizon Fios in Fairfax County and Falls Church, VA can tune in to the station via channel 37. Subscribers to Comcast in Reston can tune in via channel 27. The show's time slot is still TBD, but it will air once a week, for 58 minutes). Anyone, anywhere in the world will be able to listen live via this link: http://tunein.com/radio/Radio-Fairfax-s24818/ Previous episodes will be available at www.YouTube.com/BedtimeStoryBroadcast 

Risks and challenges

The minimum funding I am asking for will afford me six audio absorbing blankets (four for the sides and two for above and below). However, they may prove to be hard to hang or to be an insufficient sound barrier (my garage is basically backed up against Lee Highway). Then, I will have to resort to something more structural. I could also have a hard time figuring out how to construct a sound proof booth, but I have an acquaintance who used to be a manager at Home Depot. It has been a while since I saw her, but I should still be able to get back in touch w/her easily.
