see now, I knew as soon as I posted that I would read through a find it, as I just did, and yes, I am the idiot you tailored your directions for, ta Mal...

Here's your sign, WJ...

You guys are missing the point...It's not what the voices sound like so much as THE CONTENT. Commercial radio is full of slick voices (and just about anyone's voice can be helped in the production studio anyway) and crap content. Yeah you have to be a bit professional with the production but you have to have something to say. You guys DO have something to say. When you're not talking shit. I could probably give each of you a topic and say "go away and research this and talk about it for 5 minutes". Talk as if you're talking to your best mate. Think 1 on 1. Not "I wonder how many thousands of people can hear me".
I'm a radio writer. I've done some voiceover - character reads and some volunteer DJ work. I'm not the Golden Tonsils. But I know what works and what doesn't in radio. I did, after all, work for Australia's Number One - Two Triple M. And you don't get that gig unless you're very, very good. I'm Good. A lot of those funny ads you would have heard on the Ms and Austereo were written and produced by me.

We know you are good Mal, this is why we hang out here.
February 13, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWCS
Yeah Mal, the main reason that I like the podcasts is because it is another way of engaging the masses, as well as those of us that post.

It is more conversational, more engaging, to listen to someone talk about something, than to even read about it, even though they are saying the same thing.

So I guess I am agreeing with you Mal, so you know that although we do enjoy chatting through your hospitality, and there is a novelty factor in hearing each other's and our own voices, we enjoy the pithier side of www too...

Hope you didn't have a hand in that one with the dickhead voiceover man. Selling the power of radio ads!! Clever but annoying as all hell!

Mal, were you the voice of Jack on 'Will and Grace'...
February 13, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterfingers
Commercial radio as we know it is on the way out. It's gonna be Power to the People (man). It's gonna be dickheads in Paris apartments talking about Real Life. Dawn and Drew talk about shit like the size of Drew's grogan that morning ("It was a baby's arm waving at me from the bottom of the toilet bowl").

Reminded me of "The Twelfth Man", Tony Greig's voice..."Looks like a baby's arm holding onto an apple"

Some of the stuff you write here...No...a lot of the stuff you guys write here could be voiced as a Pod. You could set up a basic studio for a few hundred bucks - Dawn and Drew tell you exactly the gear they are using. And with MP3s and the like - Voila! Uncle B's "Need to make a call to my brother in Mexico" is the sort of thing you can build an entire storyline/gag/proggie around.

My grogan looked like a Cobra coiled up in the bottom of the bowl ready to strike this morning.

It's been a while between shits, so it was a really big one. In fact it was so big I had to have an epidural half way through bringing it into the world.

There'll always be a spot for you in "Wayne's World" - shwing!!

Not that thrilled about the idea of radio shows based on ablutions.
Not simply coz I saw 'Good night and good luck' last weekend, but what we need are more people getting very angry about shit like the CCT scandal, the use of media as a sales device rather than an educational tool, and Olympic Games opening ceremonies...

And take "Seinfield"...know how he sold that to the networks? "It's a programme about nothing".

You heard any of the Australian ABC podcasts? Great stuff. Especially the characters from outback and rural Orstraya.

well, I am glad to see that it wasn't that hard to scare the girls into the background, with a little simple discussion of defecatory prowess...
February 13, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWJ
I'd rather read than listen - I guess it's allows me to give people a voice (in my head) based on what they say rather than whether or not they have a lisp/say aks/um a lot ... Plus it can be done in my own time. A five mintue podcast will always take five minutes to listen to. Whereas I can read an article faster or slower depending on my interest level. That's just a personal preference though.

I like the podcasts beacuse it completes the picture of someone in my head a bit. Makes things more interactive, but personal preference and all that. Yadda, yadda...
February 13, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterWCS
Yeah Chesty...but you're in the minority. No-one reads anymore. They want instant entertainment. That's why half you bastards haven't bothered to read my carefully crafted short-stories. :)
February 13, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterlambe, paris
plus everyone can read websites and still look like they're doing work, which is much harder with a podcast.

; )

I'm actually looking forward to blogging from the Deep South, but it needs to not cost money. Plus mine probably won't allow for comments...

Hey SB, try www.livejournal.com - or Blogger.

LJ is where I have my travel journal - and people can comment, etc. Plus you can post pictures to it and do voice as well.
