    Bruno...thanks for the suggestion...I was thinking of trying just that on the next program...I'm just shy, i guess...

    I hesitate to speak on the "thematic" mixes, but may try some "dj-ing" from time to time. let me know what you think when i do! :) thanks, bruno

    Hi Betty,
    This is Dennis, a new listener, and a fan of your comprehensive knowledge/collection and the way you put tunes together (emotional collage).
    As for spoken word, or voice over, narration, DJ'ing... whatever you call it. It is like being a juggling ventriloquist to meet with the mood and modulation of the music (mmmmm) and the two ways of doing it are: Off the cuff (almost always sounds bad unless its punk or garage rock or surf (ie:casual music) you're spinning. OR professional. Like a real DJ does, like back in the days of radio. Jonathan Schwartz still does it, and does it well, since he's both a long-tme pro disc jockey, and a writer as well. He used to write the intros and outro's which, over time, grew more and more important to him, until he finally started writing for real.
    I'm not saying you couldn't do it. I'm just saying it's both juggling (more stuff to do) and ventriloquism (carrying on simultaneous musical/voice moods and meanings).
    So be warned, unless you don't care, you will find it quite difficult.
    And besides, you've proven you have great taste and excellent emotional dexterity in just putting these sets together.

    BY THE WAY, if that's the Bruno I think it his, he's a Euro smoothie that has wonderful taste in music too. You two are made for each other. You should meet in Montreal and have a torrid affair... MIX.

    Thanks, Dennis...

    I prefer letting the music "speak" for itself, and love your phrase "emotional collage".

    I'm not sure what to do regarding the voice-overs...All the comments I've received from listeners are pro-voice...hmmm...I guess I should "beef-up" on the spoken word...but, you're requires time and talent - I AM a librarian after all. :)

    Oh yeah...I bet that is the same Bruno...and what makes you think we HAVEN'T already been there, done that?! ;)
