My work as an audio producer since 2000 includes creating and producing Musicians in their own words, a long-running series which has twice been awarded national CPB grants and to date has aired 40+ features on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Featured performers include unsung heroes of American music as well as icons such as Renée Fleming, Poncho Sanchez, Yo-Yo Ma, and the late Bo Diddley. A favorite early piece in the series was awarded the Best Documentary: Silver Award at the 2004 Third Coast International Audio Festival. A favorite later piece listened in to several musicians’ warm-up routines.
Radio hero Rob Rosenthal, late of SALT, interviewed me about about producing music pieces for the Nov 6, 2013 edition of the howsound podcast!
In 2013, with a weekend intensive at Duke University’s Center for Documentary Studies, I began giving workshops. Topics include on working with music in audio storytelling, and techniques of first-person story production. Stay tuned for more soon!
In late 2012, I produced the WUNC Pop-Up Music Club for North Carolina Public Radio, supported by a grant from the NC Humanities Council. From August 2009 until September 2011, I was senior producer of Americana, the BBC’s weekly radio program of US life, culture and current affairs. Our program was heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service, and Sirius XM, and in 2011, three of my pieces were chosen for ‘Pick of the Week,’ the program showcasing the BBC’s best programming across its radio outlets.
Now back to indy work, I continue to produce and distribute new work for public radio outlets, including Hearing Voices and APM’s The Story with Dick Gordon. Here’s audio of a recent piece that first aired there …
