American Idol Season 9 Bit

I don’t really know much about the show but it appeared it didn’t end the way most people thought it should.  So this is my “whacky” radio bit about the American Idol Season 9 finale. Idol Bit – Clean

Nestle Vitality

Another Voice over for a new product, this time from Nestle.

Bad Mash Trailer (Bollywood)

I don’t know why but I really like doing these.  I get to try and hone my Trailer delivery and still get paid a little bit for it.  I did 2 versions.  An “UP” read and then a more lo-key. Bad Mash Company – UP Bad Mash Company – LO

5K Name Game stuff…

The first file is just a crap-load of 5K Name Game imaging for 96-3 KSCS in Dallas.  The second is when the wheels came off… 5k Name Game Imaging (A LOT) 5K Promo – Things took a bad turn

Nerdery – wireless laptop-to-tv video feed

I got this… except I actually bought it at Frys because I was too impatient to wait for shipping. It is awesome!  It took me a total of 3 minutes to get it to work.  And I expected the piucture quality to be pretty good, not great.  It is as close to great as can…

Y-106.5 Launch Demo

I was hired to voice and produce the reimagination of Y-106-5 in Wisconsin.  Its a VERY competitive country market with another station holding strong at the top.  Y-106.5 already does well but hopefully with these imaging changes, the new jingle package and a new PD they can take over the number 1 spot.

The site was cool but was “so 2008” and the blog didn’t really go anywhere. So I hope this site doesn’t seem “so 2010” in 2 years and I make no promises as to the frequency of my blog entries…
