Love the idea of the “Murrow” program. That would add a certain gravitas!

Now me, I sound like Beaver’s brother Wally–which I means I will go a very long way never to hear or watch a recorded version of myself speak.

You sound just like Historiann, of my memory. I think the BBC has some audio technology– informally called by its techies “Murrow”–that makes everyone sound as though they’re covering the Blitz, ducking and juking between incoming V-1s and V-2s. It was developed in conjunction with (re)-opening the Churchill War Rooms some years back. Or maybe it was the anniversary special on the Cavern Club in Liverpool.

My three fave sound-bytes: “Wabenakified,” scholars “running wild” and finding “too many Middle Grounds” back in the ’90s (ay-men), plus, of course, the “average enlisted schmoe…”

And, Roxie: I’m glad to have given you a laugh today. You ARE Asta, only much, much smarter.

Some people sound ridiculous on tape, but you are not one of them. Hearing oneself speaking over the air is kind of awkward (at least for me when I’ve done it!), but you have the voice to pull it off.

(But, thanks for trying to cheer me up about my squeaky voice.)
