Tips for making a
Recording your own presentation appears daunting, sustaining a
monologue for 15 minutes to 1 hour, without mistakes, virtually
impossible; this can put some people off. Add the latter to the fact
that most people find the sound of their own voice odd,
unprofessional and at worst silly, it is amazing how any of us
create any recorded material. Rest assured, we are our own worst
critics. This criticism about ourselves is unfounded.
The benefits of using audio software means that you do not have
to launch into a complete presentation, you can record your
information one paragraph at a time, save it then join it
together to form a complete show. It is, however, a good idea to
write down your information first, as this will enable you to
state what you want to say with accuracy. It is very common to
have the perfect sentence in your head for it only to be lost
when you approach the microphone – it happens to all of us. This
is why documentary narrators work from a script. The beauty
about writing your own script is that you can take your time and
wait for the right words to flow. The fact that you will be
working from a script means you cannot be lost for words. Having
said that, don’t expect to create the perfect recording first
time out, you may need to go through a few ‘Takes’ beforehand.
Again, this is very common. Your script can be anything from
scribbled words on paper to a printed word-processed document.
The method doesn’t matter; the words do.
Audacity, the audio software, suggested in the following
Here), is an extremely good, professional, and FREE open
source program. It will allow you to record in blocks and edit
these together to create a complete show. Depending on the power
of your computer, it will also allow you to add an ambient music
score, but try not to drown out your own voice. We would prefer
the finished file to be saved as a 32bit MP3, but any standard
audio file will do. We can convert them for you – if we have the
time. Before emailing us, please compress your show into a
WinZip (or other compressed) file, if possible.
Please read the
help files associated with your recording software.
If you don't feel like recording a presentation write your information down and send it us, we will read it out for you. Some people have a strong, artistic manner and truth often comes out in song or prose. If you have recorded a song or written a poignant poem we will gladly play it or read it on air for you.

Accept people’s opinions with grace and disagree with equal
People who make public
statements or are in the public eye (such as politicians,
celebrities and, yes, radio hosts, should be open to criticism),
This criticism, however, has to be founded on a basis of researched
fact and sited in your presentation.
One must remember that
making public statements is different from conversing privately with
At this time, stating a belief or opinion is not illegal
(depending on the country you live in). You can say: “I have
researched what I believe to be the facts and
in my opinion Mr or Mrs. Blogs appears to be doing
this that and the other.” If you state a belief or opinion based
on another individual's hearsay, it could and often does
lead to problems. If you have stated facts based on weak
evidence, belief or opinion, be prepared for a well-researched
reply. This may prove embarrassing for you. If you are prepared
to make a public statement, you must be prepared for public
questions and answers, it is only fair. Research and accuracy is
Please make sure you have done your research, because you might
be asked for it, maybe by us, but more likely by the person you
are talking about. It is good practice to release your research
to interested parties, for they have a right of reply to you and
it could strengthen your presentation. Anyway, most journalists
or people writing blogs and voicing statements expect and want
a reply to their comments, it
helps to substantiate or refute the facts.
