The mid 80s to just after 2000, I did a LOT of VO work as an AFTRA and SAG member. Enough to become vested for a pension and continuing health care.

      A lot of my friends down in DC do talking books. I've recorded them for others here at my studio, but I don't think I have the patience to voice them myself.

      One of my long-form gigs came from someone being referred to me. We are now 182 half-hour shows in and they run on Sirius/XM 131 Family Talk, as well as being available on iTunes and my client's web site."

      The latest, a series of Edgar Allan Poe re-writes, came in from a friend I've know somewhat distantly now, for the last 30 years. I'm the Technical Director. No voice work. Working with Foley, SFX and original music cues has been great fun. After three shows (one per month) WYPR said we had accumulated 6000 downloads!! (and it wasn't me hitting "download" 6000 times.)

      Here are the Poe shows, so far.

      I'm going to write an article here about the process soon.
