When I heard about a little radio station in Kentucky called Central Kentucky Radio Eye, which uses volunteers to read printed news stories for the blind I immediately wanted to help out. Besides being from Kentucky, I like to read :)
I contacted them and they had another suggestion - why don't I tell stories from TheGoodMuse and some new ones to break up their regular news programming.
Thus followed anxiety where I pondered over the right stories to tell and then how was I going to record it without knowing anything about recording.
Then I realized I needed to get over it. I was doing this for other people. No time for ego trippin'.
So one night I sat down at my computer, hit record on the GarageBand program, and tried to keep the cat off the pages I was reading. You can hear the results. One take, no edits, just me reading stories about growing up in Kentucky, living in California, and some adventures - volunteering and otherwise. I hope it sounds okay.
Here's a link to the stories:
