Best way to video show?

Hey I would like to video my show to share with friends out of the area but am a little stumped as to the best way to capture the audio. I broadcast my audio on fm radio but don't have a way for my video camera to capture the sound off the air. I know this is not a new question or problem so I appeal to those smarter than me. Tks

Have a portable radio near the camera to record a reference audio track , then dub in a clean track in Windows Movie Maker.  Use the reference track to jog it back and forth till it lines up. After they are lined up, mute the reference track.

I use a Mac and IMovie.  I split the sound from the video (Just a click of the mouse in iMovie)  Mute the sound from from the camera again in iMovie,  and just insert the show song from iTunes and line it back up to sync with the lights.  That part is easy, I struggle with getting video that I am happy with.  It just doesn't look  as good on video as it does standing there watching.

I use my old walkman tuned into the station, and just turn it up and hang the headset on top of the camera.

 

A couple of things we have done for years - always use a tripod - and take your videos either as the sun is setting or just before it comes up.  The additional ambiant light makes your show just that much nicer.

 

But most of all - have fun!

I went super high tech: Parked car across street, tuned in radio & taped through open window ;-)

That's what I'm doing this year. I'm going to video with my phone camera and just record the audio off of the radio. But I broadcast good stuff so there isn't much quality lost.

I tried some video last night with what I mentioned above. I couldn't get a good angle with my main camera so I had to use the facetime camera. Video turned out sorta ok. I'll try it again later with a different method and find a setup so I can use the better camera.
