An honor, good Vox. Finally another spot in the cybersphere where the unseen, the ones with a face for radio and a voice-box in the Pantheon can hang out. We used to spend time in actual v/o studios in the ancient 20th century and drive around like UPS drivers, cursing our way through traffic to get to sessions on time...or at least not more than fifteen minutes late. I asked my agent once, "So how long will this next gig take?" She said, "Oh, five minutes." I showed up at a studio on Sunset Bl., and the producer handed me a five page script, and I said, "Oh, no, my agent said this would be five minutes."
"Yeah," he said, "It's a five minute script. You'll be out of here in an hour."
I was too embarrassed to protest. Needless to say I didn't get hired back.
Leave and learn, I say.
