Radio Tour Comes to a Lovely Spring Ending

I just did my last radio show of my tour. It’s been a busy season!

What an honor to talk to so many people across the country. I really like radio personalities! I admire their wit and how they are so quick on their feet. Although writers and radio hosts are both communicators, writers are obviously more focused on non-verbal communication.

I recently wrote an article about a voice class I took at the Studio Theatre in Washington DC prior to the radio tour. It helped me gain a better appreciation for my voice and encouraged me to want to use it more. You can find the article here.

The radio tour was just another example I have encountered in life about how valuable cross-pollination is in the arts. So often, writers will stick with writers, and actors will stick with other actors, but really, we have so much to learn from each other. I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to hang out with actors at the Studio Theatre, and to talk to so many people on air who make their living through their speaking ability.

If you missed the radio shows, some of them are available online. Some were more interesting and fun than others, but such is life! All of my shows are listed on my Appearances page and linked to the website that I found for each show. Some stations maintain archives, and others do not.

Although endings are always a little bit sad, it’s a beautiful spring day outside. An ending always brings new opportunities. The flowers outside highlight that this is the season of new beginnings.
