Episode 133: Steve Taylor
Steve Taylor has been on an impressive RISE over the last few years. For me, I went from sort of knowing of him and hearing him some places…to befriending him and hearing him EVERYWHERE! Based on his work with iHeart Radio Stations, TV Networks and Local TV Affiliates… and everything else he does… he might be one of the most “heard” voice actors working today. From a variety of National and Local radio stations/formats, to the Voice of Court TV and many other TV platforms he really is killing it. But he’s southern and humble so you wouldn’t really know it by hanging out with him. Steve is also working as Production Director for a great group of stations, US Stations, in Hot Springs, Arkansas. We get into all of that and the various moments and jobs along the way that brought him to where he is today. It’s also possible we talked about an ass growth…you’ll have to listen to find out more on that. ENJOY!

Episode 132: Jeff Schmidt 2019
Another returning guest, Jeff Schmidt is back for a very specific reason: He is producing some of the biggest and most successful podcasts available. Jeff is atop-tier radio imaging producer and sound designer based in the Bay Area. Most recently, as I mentioned, he’s focused on podcast production. In this “new” podcast realm he has produced DR. DEATH, DIRTY JOHN, FEAR, OVER MY DEAD BODY, IMAGINED LIFE, GLADIATOR, The “INSIDE” shows, well…I could go on and on. I wanted to get a deep look at what goes into the creation of these high-production-value shows that have simply blown up in the last 3 to 5 years. And, in my opinion, it’s only been in the last 1 to 3 years that have seen podcasts finally become ubiquitous. I try to discuss it all from how he started to the workload and the money and the general process from start to finish. I found it all very interesting and hope you do too!

Episode 131: Issa Lopez
As a Voice Actor Issa Lopez makes it very clear that she knows who she is…and who she is NOT. This is one of the biggest factors in her growth and success. Issa is a bilingual talent focusing on Radio Imaging, Commercial, Narration, IVR and more in both English and Spanish. She is heard all over North, Central and South America on Radio, TV, Online and more. Issa started as a Singer, seeing much success, and was faced with very tough life choices early on. She found her way to fortuitous 11-year career On the Air in Radio (while also building a voiceover career) finally transitioning to full-time voiceover in 2016. We cover her obstacles, struggles and successes and I am very honored to have her on the show, telling her story in a perfectly imperfect genuine and honest way. I hope you get something special from this episode and that she inspires you or motivates you on your own journey. Check out her website: ISSAVOICE.com She’s linked to all her socials on her site and she does that very well. –Watch on Youtube– –Show Audio–

Episode 130: Mark Peeples
A veteran Voice Actor, Mark Peeples is heard…everywhere. Radio, TV Affiliate are the BIG ones for Mark but he also reads Promo, Trailers, Commercial, Late Night TV bits and more in his Alabama studio. Mark started in Radio but shifted to Voiceover pretty early in his career in Atlanta. One of his big “breaks” was for Turner and as you will hear it basically all got rolling from there. I kick off the interview with a small sample of his work, including one of the spots from that first Turner campaign, The NBA on TNT/TBS. Visit his Site (and yes he has a redesign in the works) to hear even more audio demos: http://markpeeples.com/ Check out his pics, studio at the top, the brains behind the operation (his wife) mixed in there too! —SHOW AUDIO —

Episode 129: Roger Keeler 2019
Roger Keeler is UNIQUE. He is also immensely talented, creative, experienced, off-beat, musical, and highly SKILLED in all things audio. BUT above all else – UNIQUE. This is one of the few people I wanted to have on for a second time. When I am out in the wild talking Imaging with other pros his name comes up often. I doubt he knows how many people look up to him. His skills are wide ranging but he excels at one of the most important – WRITING. Listen to his work and it will be evident. Roger handles many responsibilities for iHeart Denver for 29 (almost 30) years and counting – Production for Channel 93-3 (KTCL), KBCO, a little on The BULL, Punk Tacos and others PLUS he is the signature sound of Radio 94-9 in Fort Collins, CO (Anyone who knows me knows why that town is important to me). Instagram: @rogerkeeler Be sure to check out the SHOW NOTES PAGE for this one. Roger gave us so much great audio!

Episode 128: Dan Mumford
Our guest, Dan Mumford, spent a decade at RADIO 1 in the UK starting at age 25. He then had some other Radio Imaging related jobs but quickly found his place as a successful music and sound design producer/composer/engineer. We discuss his music background, radio background and how they intersect. Of course we talk tech — you better check out the pics of his studio including his modular synth! Maybe most importantly we get into his latest venture, RAFT MUSIC, his own production music library which literally JUST launched days before I am posting this show. We discuss his workflow, the talent with whom he works, ways YOU can make a living producing music and maybe a secret weapon or two you’ll find in his studio. *Special Note: The music I use in this show is all from RAFT MUSIC!

Episode 126: Capital FM/Xtra 2018
To finish off 2018 in style I decided the show would require a TEAM as opposed to ONE guest. In fact, I welcome not just “a” team but perhaps THE team. The 7-man Imaging Collective at CAPITAL and CAPITAL XTRA are ALL guests on the show. We commandeered the big studio at Capital and even had multiple remote locations mixed in. I can’t begin to summarize everything we discussed but I did my best to cover most of what goes into Imaging such Epic brands like Capital and Capital Xtra plus all the network stations/affiliates. Topics: Background of each, the traits they uniquely bring to the table, day-to-day operations, dividing the work, producing sound to picture, the various tools they use, the strategies that go into building their legendary sound and more. I also asked about SOCCER (Football) because I was hoping a fight would break out. Almost. The World Class crew at Capital in London includes: Ashley Bard (Head of Production), Jonathan Young, Ed Rummins, Dan Hill, Chris Longman, Sam Wickens and Luke Prior. They are all prodigious, cool as hell and a true pleasure for me to have on the show. BONUS! Looking for a job? Possibly one of the best Imaging jobs on earth? It’s in there. They are hiring! *Ashley Bard went way above and beyond to make this happen! I had to extend a HUGE “Thanks” to him.

Episode 125: Nik Smon
I should lead with one of the big reasons I wanted Nik Smon on the show: He uses Ableton. Music producers, especially electronic producers, might say, “So what?” But in the Radio Imaging world it’s rather rare to work in this DAW. (Warning – Voice talents or NOT-so-nerdy-audiophiles – we get super nerdy with audio geekery) I saw Nik in action on stage at the Imaging Days in Amsterdam. He was methodically, efficiently and creatively moving around the software building musical, tight, effective production in no time and I was REALLY impressed. I had to know more! Nik is a freelance Radio Imaging producer based in Slovenia. He works for stations and brands on an international scale and is a specialist in music branding, custom intro production and (in my words) making everything he produces feel like it was “born that way.” PLEASE visit the SHOW NOTES page for this show. He provided a lot of great content: bonus audio, studio pics and plenty of links!

Episode 124: Rich Van Slyke
“Write it down. Write down what you want. Write down your goals.” I’ll lead off this post with those wise words provided from my guest, Rich Van Slyke. Sort of seems obvious…yet is it? How many of us actually do that? I do not. On top of being a stellar Radio Imaging Voice, Rich is bringing some perspective today! The type of perspective that comes from many years of experience , quality experience. He is an Up-State New York guy, started radio there in ’79. He then elevated to the Production Director gig at 96-Rock in Atlanta. Then…a wave of lay-offs (Radio wasn’t the busted ATM machine everyone knew it to be anymore.) Since then, its been about 18 years of full-time, from-home, voiceover. Among many things he is the Radio Imaging Station voice of some pretty major stations. Rich was surprisingly honest about his transition from inside the station to going on his own. It can be hard for anyone to adjust and he took it especially hard but got through it and is better for it. He was VERY candid in the interview about the whole process and is obviously doing something right. Which is why I am going to write down a goal I’ve had sitting in the back of my mind right here, publicly…why not. I want to be the a voice of KROQ even for one day, one promo. Many aspects of that station, it’s heritage and talent are a HUGE part of why I went into radio and more specifically radio imaging production. It’s not an “attain this thing and retire” type goal by any means. But I did it. I wrote it down. Rich said so. Hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did! Maybe write down a goal or two of your own. LINKS: Rich’s Website Buy his Rock Imaging package: Distortion!

Episode 123: Brad Leask
Brad is the Network Imaging Producer for NOVA Entertainment based in Sydney, Australia. Great gig for a seasoned veteran of the industry…or for someone who has been in for 5 YEARS and is all of 24 YEARS OLD! You wouldn’t know how old or young he is by talking to him. You will know how much passion and love he has for the Radio Imaging Production industry and Radio in general. I would list some of the many places he’s worked (credits so-to-speak) but there is NOVA and…..NOVA. He tells us about starting out, the realities of working 3 jobs, going to school and just being AT the station whenever possible and what it takes to get IN and get GOOD. Voice Actors: I do make an effort to dig in and get some info for you about what is expected by the big producers… but you will hear at about the 30min mark that the setup between talent and producer at the major networks and stations in Australia is TOTALLY different from the states. PRODCAST: Brad was featured as the first guest on Dom Evans podcast “PRODCAST.” I mentioned this in my intro – so here is the link to that. I have listened and it is GOOD! In fact I didn’t notice until now, but the show finished with Brad back for the finale so I still need to go hear that. Dom is smarter than me – doing his shows MORE often and in a season format. He is currently on break. PICS!

Episode 122: The Imaging House
Kelly Doherty, K3, KellyKellyKelly is the guest…again! Kelly has been a big player in the Radio Imaging world for a very long time and became a household name playing at highest levels at a rather young age. She is an Imaging Voice Artist heard on some of the pinnacle radio brands across the world in a variety of formats, produced imaging, managed imaging producers, hosted amazing radio imaging panels and is generally connected to everything and everyone in the Radio Imaging ecosystem. I am very happy to help get the word out about her BRAND NEW project – The Imaging House. The Imaging House is tough to explain in one sentence – but I will try: It is an online HUB for all things Radio Imaging. We go deep into what will be found on the site during the interview but let’s just say if you are a seasoned veteran, just getting started or somewhere in between – you will find value. Imaging Voices, Producers, Coaches, Programers, Consultants and more should make their way over July 24th, 2018!

Episode 121: Josh Goodman
The transition from a successful career on-the-air in radio to independent full-time voice artist is not exactly an easy proposition and certainly not as easy as some people might expect it to be. Denver-based talent Josh Goodman is a multi-faceted voiceover artist who is LEGIT good at all the various….facets… and has navigated that radio to voice transition in a methodical, measured and fortuitous manner. Josh Goodman: Commercial, Radio Imaging, TV Promo, In-Show Narration, eLearning, Industrial, AudioBooks and more. And damn good (and successful) at all of it. He is another one of my guests that you might not have heard OF (though many of you have) but you have HEARD at some point. He gets into some of the realities of how, why, when you may decide to go “on your own” and some things to consider during the process. Dividing up the elements of the business, managing your time, budgets, marketing, coaching, agents and a little tech are topics on this show. Enjoy!

Episode 120: Ron Tarrant
UPDATE: I am not going to say Ron owes me $10 (I don’t think he accepted my bet) but today, June 7th 2018, Ron was able to announce he is joining the team at Reel World. A GREAT Get for them! The entire staff at the Producers Podcast (me) wishes him continued world domination and success. Ron Tarrant has been on a rapid rise in the Radio Imaging industry which has included jobs in small, large and MAMOTH markets…or “worlds.” Canadian born, he is one of those talented producers who came down to the states to take on one of the biggest gigs in America, Imaging Director of the Howard Stern Channels at Sirius XM. Before that he was at, what was originally a dream job, KISS in Toronto. The gig with Howard is done now (more in show) and he is venturing back to Canada for a new chapter. I tried to guess what that entailed but for strict confidentiality reasons and possibly other felonious behaviors, he could not divulge as of this taping. Ron is YET ANOTHER NICE CANADIAN stalling my never-ending goal of finding the NOT-NICE one. OH, and if all this isn’t enough turns out he is one sick musician! I admit I knew he played guitar but that’s about it – I didn’t know crap when it came it to that side of his world. Yeah, its WAY more than that! It was great to have him and I hope you enjoy what he brings to the table! *Be sure to check out the SHOW NOTES PAGE for more pics and the MUSIC I reference in show.

Episode 119: Bob Schmidt
Bob Schmidt is the voice of the Fox Sports Radio Network, The Dan Patrick Show, AM 570 in LA and countless other (mostly sports) stations and shows around the US. Bob is also…yes ALSO… an extremely talented Radio Imaging Producer. He produces AM 570 in LA, calls that his home base and has been in that role since 2004. I will admit I just didn’t know much about Bob before I reached out. As will become clear if you listen to the show, I pretty much ONLY knew that he did the Intros for Dan Patrick which I listen to everyday. We talk about his world, the industry and his day to day routines. The chat was a bit sports heavy (duh) but we didn’t get all “stats-y” or muddled down in the details like a sports talk show. Until today I have spent almost ZERO minutes of this podcast focusing on sports imaging! Not ZERO but not NEARLY enough! I was failing that part of the industry…but no more. Check out Voice of Bob website for a bunch of other demos and to grab info on Bob himself.

Episode 118: Scott Matthews
After this interview, and based on our conversations away from the show, I can safely say that Scott Matthews LOVES radio and is proud to make it his primary focus. Scott Matthews is a Radio Imaging Voice. I think I could leave it there and he would be fine with that. But alas that is not all Scott is known for. Yes, Scott is heard as Brand Voice on Radio Stations, in various radio formats, around the world. It would take me too long to list them or even list the “Big” ones. Scott is also working in TV Promo, commercial and in-show narration. We discuss all of that in detail. We also discuss his approach to marketing, training, servicing clients and a tiny, small amount of tech nerd stuff. This is NOT a tech-centric episode. I ask about the moment he knew it was time to leave his “Day job” which is something we all might deal with… now or later. http://www.scottmatthewsvoice.com/ PLEASE visit the Show Notes page for this one. I had to gush a bit on Scott’s work at 99-5 The Wolf in Dallas. My old friend Phat Matt Ganssle’s production (RIP) paired with Scott and Barry Corbin was one of the most complete epic radio-branding success’ in history. No hyperbole. I asked Scott for some of that audio and he came through. He also provided a bunch of studio pics and some other bonus audio. Hope you dig this one as much as I did. I don’t NEED to say it but I will – Scott is one of the good guys and I am happy he gave me the time. **ALERT/ATTENTION** I did a small giveaway on this one. I completed a new Audiobook. I am pretty happy with this one. The Variant by Justin M. Woodward. The author is very cool and probably in the “up and Coming” category but I think he is legit and will be big. I’ll be doing the next in this series too! Anywho….in the intro I announce a very simple way to win a copy on Audible if you want one. I have FIVE to give away. OK – thats it! Enjoy!
