I finished my 58th and final show of my Voice On Record radio programme on 20th December. This was a one hour show for Resonance FM broadcast every week on Tuesday evenings, repeated on Sundays featuring a wide selection of spoken word recordings from my collection.
Each week would have a theme and through the almost 18 months the show was running, I played recordings of people like William Faulkner, Buckminster Fuller, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Aldous Huxley, John Arlott, Richard Burton, James Joyce, Bela Lugosi, and many other not so famous individuals with interesting voices or stories.
The shows are possibly still available to download from Resonance FM.
The full details including playlists and pictures of the records are available on the Voice On Record blog.

3-5th December 2010 was the ARP conference at Leeds Metropolitan University where I presented a paper entitled - Tubby's Dub Style: The live art of record production. There was a great range of papers and some very interesting speakers including Paul Miller (DJ Spooky), Paul Harkins (Edinburgh, Napier) and an excellent keynote by Steve Albini.
