Do you hear what I hear?

In 2016, I ended my 8-year run of contributing to CBC Radio’s regional network here in Quebec. It was a blast while it lasted. Among my favourite audio excursions were those in which I created short sketches. Here are two of those, Christmas-themed pieces for you as you finish up any last-minute shopping (are you crazy?!?) and settle down for your Christmas Eve.

Peace and kindness to you all, whatever and however you celebrate.

About rossmurray1

I'm Canadian so I pronounce it "Aboot." No, I don't! I don't know any Canadian who says "aboot." Damnable lies! But I do know this Canadian is all about humour (with a U) and satire. Come by. I don't bite, or as we Canadians say, "beet."

    You never tire of those plays on retail store names do you? I don’t either. Judeah’s Got Talent? Do you need a napkin? The second king didn’t sound like you in this (the gruff, lower-sounding king). Or is that you with mucous?

    Oh that was fun, Ross! They should re-elect you for another 4at least. You’re Canadian — no term limits, right?

    Happy Holidays to you, Ross. And may 2017 not suck.

  3. Thanks Ross.

    Happy holidays to you as well.

    I have certainly enjoyed your pieces and am sorry to hear what I won’t be hearing. I hope you’ll continue to post audios on Soundcloud. Or just call me and read over the phone from time to time. A belated Merry to you and preemptive Happy New Year, my friend 😉

    Have you considered Pod-casting? When I first started blogging, I would record my posts because I imagined I’d be just as funny out loud as I am in my head. Turns out the voices are way funnier in my head.

    But seriously, pod casting? It is a still thing, long after we’ve all forgotten iPods ever existed, I guess because of Mark Marron, mostly.

      I’ve found that direct post-to-podcast doesn’t always work. Something read doesn’t translate as effectively when heard, especially humour it seems. The whole thing has to be shorter, and sentences generally too — fewer verbal gymnastics. On the plus side, you can do things spoken that you can’t do in writing, i.e. inflection.
      Anyway, my experience from posting these on Soundcloud is: who would listen?

      • Karen says:

        I had to google “Soundcloud” to see what it was (I thought it was some sort of recording software program/app and now I see it is not!)

        I guess I’m just suggesting pod-casting (or “sound-clouding”) because voice seems to be a medium you enjoyed working in.

Go ahead, don't be shy.
