The Magazine on the Internet for Voice-overs|
& Radio Commercial Producers
Welcome to the Archive of The Voice, which was first published in September 1995 as the UK Voice-over
fraternity, a relatively small and close-knit group, was becoming
increasingly isolated by the march of digital technology. The "Home Studio"
was rapidly taking the place of local radio in-house sessions and
voice-overs and the production teams they had worked closely with over the
years were beginning to miss the face to face contact and the news which
voice-overs would carry around the circuit.
It was clear that the industry needed something to link the fragments together, an instrument which would keep the links alive by sharing the news and views of the industry and the amusing bits of gossip which the pony express voices had hitherto circulated. The Voice does not pretend to be the ultimate answer to the problems of our ever changing industry but is, merely, a small light in that dark area. The full version contains items which have meaning only to the UK fraternity. What you see here is an edited version of the paper suitable for International consumption.
Due to pressure of work there have been no new issues
of THE VOICE since Christmas 1997.
