I have just spent the morning searching through CDs to find examples of the talking newspaper that I can include in my next talk.
I usually tell people about my life and the books I have written but this time the title is “From Manuscript to Microphone” and I am going to talk about how recording my first novel led to being a reader for the Voice of Progress and the recordings I have done over the last six years, culminating, of course, in this December’s pantomime.
The first part of each recording is a round up of local news, taken from newspapers in the area and the second part is a magazine, compiled by one of the readers which can include an interview, travel experiences, history or music. I often read a poem or two.
I only have one booking for 2018 but as I am no longer willing to drive in the dark perhaps that’s a good thing!
