Episode 63: Brian Cooney Part 1

Brian Cooney, requested multiple times, was a nice chat and very insightful on the voiceover world.  I really enjoyed his candor on certain topics like money, unions, competition and workloads. I have had multiple interviewees in the past tell me they prefered not to speak about one or more of these issues.  BUT we are…

Episode 63: Brian Cooney Part 2

My new friend Brian Cooney is back with part 2!  Actually he didn’t go anywhere but whatever.  FYI-I cut it off right before we started the Union talk so Part2 begins as we dive into that. Then we talk different types of jobs, gaining and losing gigs, studio specs and other tech related issues.

VO/PROD Tech Roundtable: The Podcast – Part 1

This Podcast is actually the audio feed from my Google Hangout with Jeff Berlin and Steve Sykes.  The goal was to toss out all the background and personal interview crap and stick to Issues of TECH and only TECH as it relates to a Voiceover or Production pro. Steve and Jeff are both incredibly tech…

Episode 62: Allan Peck – Part 1

My guest also happens to be a very good friend and someone who I have turned to many times for professional advice.  Allan Peck has seen momentous leaps in his career for well over a decade but especially just in the last 12 to 18 months.  He is the voice of Ellen, CNBC Prime and…

Episode 62: Allan Peck – Part 2

And…we continue with Part 2.  This is a major gear shift as I pick up the pace and the tempo of questions asked.  I go in about 20 directions trying to squeeze as much info from Allan’s brain as I could.  We get into Source Connect, Agents, Managers, Types of work, how to attain work,…

Producers Podcast: Upcoming 2013

At the conclusion of my DEKE interview I had a bunch of emails out but nothing completely set in stone as far as future guests.  Now I have 3 different interviews setup and of course, a few more in the works.  Right now I am looking to give everyone a chance to submit questions and…

Episode 61: Cousin Deke

Cousin Deke is a lot of things.  Talented Voice artist, Excellent producer, National and International Talent and super down-to-earth human being.  Technologically Advanced is not one of those things.  I jest (a little) just to demonstrate that while Deke is one of the best and most successful working talents in radio he is also proof…

Episode 60: Jon Carter

5 more and I get to retire! No, you won’t get rid of me that easy.   Voice talent, Producer, Singer and all around nice guy, Jon Carter is the guest.  I found a lot of value not just in how to be a better talent but also how to run a  better business.  Jon…

Episode 59: Vish B – P1

Vishwanath Balakrishnan is the guest and no, I did not pronounce it right.  But he goes by Vish and is a talented imaging producer (Senior Producer) at Radio 2 in Dubai.  The reason I wanted to interview him having known almost nothing about him was based on his work for the Benztown Iron Imager entry.…

Episode 59: Vish B – P2

Here is Part 2 with Vish.  This is the point at which I started talking software/hardware, techniques, imaging theory and more in-depth station sound specifics.

Episode 58: Mike Bratton

As a capable voiceover artist myself I try to keep that side of this podcast front and center in about half of the episodes/interviews. Mike Bratton is a very talented VO that works in multiple mediums and is neck deep in a long successful career. I tried to get as rapid fire as I am…

Episode 57 – Mike Madrigal – P2

So, perhaps detailed background stories, tales of massive salaries and major market radio imaging gigs in literally the pinnacle of radio’s history ain’t your thing.  Then part 2 is a good place to start. Mike is nothing if not brutally honest. While our opinions may not overlap in all areas of the industry, I respect…

Episode 57 – Mike Madrigal – P1

I hope the total time on this one doesn’t turn you away because I think it will be a very worth-while listen.  Normally I gun for a 1 hour total time. This one in 2 parts gets near 2 hours.  I should be clear up front if you are not totally interested in all the…

Episode 54 – Steve Pigott – P1

Episode 54 brings me to a guest I have been interested in speaking with for a WHILE.  He tells me I pulled him out of a 5 or so year interview blackout so that is cool!  Steve Pigott is well known globally for his radio branding skills on the creative side and on the business…

I assume director, producer, contributor, editor and catering…

I FINALLY started to get back to normal after the holiday madness.  I had the pleasure of an interview with James Harness and now you have the pleasure of hearing it ;).  James was on my list of people to chat with but recently he took the very coveted Imaging Director job at CC-LA’s KISS…
