Our good friends at Monticello Media radio stations have been supporting our month-long mentor & tutor recruitment drive with public service announcements on all their stations. For the first ad, Lance Blakey and I recorded the ad with the help of Tom @107.5 afternoon host Kerry James, who acted as director and sound engineer for us amateurs. On Tuesday, Lance was not available (out keeping us all safe in his job as a City of Charlottesville firefighter) so I asked Shaele Wood, United Way Volunteer Center Director to help on short notice.
Once again Kerry was gracious and patient with us. Shaele nailed her lines, but I felt like I was hissing the “s” at the end of “interests” and kept trying to do the line over. Of course, the more I focused on saying the word normally, the more strange it sounded. We had a lot of fun with it, and apparently Kerry did too because when he sent us a copy of the ad, he included a separate recording of my outtakes. Enjoy a good laugh by listening here.
In the meantime, we hope that these ads, and the new ad running on NBC29 (watch below), will get a lot of folks to come to the Omni on Monday, March 30 from 3:00 to 6:00 pm to meet the people whose words have been populating this blog all month as guest bloggers. After all, it is all about giving support and encouragement to our kids.
