I love Tony Robinsons voice.
I got the audio books from the library
I have now discovered I don't like having a book read to me
Hey Gal? I was talking to my older daughter about you the other day. (in the general scheme of all things DW). We are both promoters (talk for a living) and former radio jocks (talk for a living). She has just gone back to work after more than a year off work due to anxiety attacks and as she is doing part time and I am doing part time, we are sharing her PA equipment so its back and forth from one side of the city to the other. As she is starting back after such a long hiatis she was talking about her voice training (you need to train your voice and diaphram to articulate for four hours or more), and she knows I understand.
In the process of getting the amp I was also raiding her bookshelf (she has just moved into a new apartment and is unpacking) and she was passing some books to me of SF short stories (my passion; though because of a shocking episode years ago where the ex sold off my rare collected books and SF mags for 20c each one I have avoided for a long time). I mentioned you and how you must only be able to access books that HAVE been recorded and how you must miss out on the short stories.
I won't promise anything immediately (I have a monster promo coming up of 6 hours a day for a week... unheard of, and it will take a week to get over it IF my voice lasts for the week).... but would you like me to record some of the stories for you to listen to? Voice overs used to be my trade after all; though they were for radio ads and all bouncy bouncy up up. I have never "read" a story but will give it a go. (as long as I don't have to do any hippopotamus voices
