Tell Me a Story Geoff LePard

When I was 13 a friend recorded me on his new tape machine. I waited for the playback with eager anticipation, expecting a young Richard Burton, I suppose. What emerged was some hybrid Teletubby-Witchy squeak-cum-cackle. I hated it and was mortified to think this is what everyone heard when I spoke. Roll on a few decades and I still await any recording with more than a little trepidation. Maybe you do too? Well, why not pop across to Annette and follow her link to the Magic Happens where I’m talking about my new book. You need to scroll down as the recordings are listed alphabetically. What do you think? Mandela with a hint of Pavarotti? Some basso profondo notes? Let me know in the comments

    A school friend had one of the very first cassette recorders with chunky microphone and for a summer, we recorded our own “radio” station making up ads, programs and recording records. I never thought about how I sounded, I just loved the medium! Fast forward to adulthood and I carry a recorder to capture the stories of others. Don’t worry, it’s the story everyone hears, not the voice. Congratulations!

  8. You sound quite pleasant on the recording. Funny that I had the same experience hearing my own voice on a recorder. It was horrid and did not sound like what I hear in my own ears. What a lovely interview. You do it quite well as expected. I’m looking forward to reading the book as it’s already on my reader.

      Thanks for the vote of confidence. I guess I’ve done so much public speaking that I enjoy these sort of situations. The challenge is to inform amuse but not overdo. Not easy when you enjoy, as I do, being centre stage!!
