Many as above,  I'm interested in hearing recordings of radio shows you've featured on if possible?

I see the list, you've been busy!

I don't actually have an archive. I may have one or two I will try to dig out.

I think the "On the Mark" show in FL is still on his website as a downloadable. As may be the two I did with DeAnna Lorraine.

US radio isn't like UK radio, they have you only over a phone line and there is no sound check or production values we expect unless its a big syndicated FM show. They say they will mail you back an MP3 but they don't. Many American AM stations are like our community radio stations. A bit tinpot.

When we tried to get Jeremy Vine to run a feature, they ran a mile. Not PC enough for the BBC.  :chuckle:

The notable ones were Kim Iverson in the US which was a big FM syndicated show, that got lots of angry American feminists calling in talking about Russian women bringing in bombs. Hilarious!  :chuckle:

The other one was a guy in Canada, and that show was a scream. I got on well with the guy, we were chatting during commercials. It ran into extra time.

All I did last time was Google my name and the stations on the list, and I found only about four in their archives.

Most of these are a few years old now. I have refused recent ones, the latest of which was a UK TV outfit that posted here somewhere.

Jeremy Vine?


I can just imagine the uproar and irate callers calling in.

If you do find anything please let me know, be interested to hear it.

I just found one of my very early ones from a little station in Alaska. Probably not the best example, but it was all good training for the bigger stuff.  :chuckle:

That guys accent/voice is irritating to say the least. It may be because it's poor quality mp3 but he sounds almost robotic.

Manny, why not try compiling all the interviews that you can find into a single repository on your own server, it'd be a pretty cool resource.
