RE: Any of you jockeys also do commercials?

This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

RE: Any of you jockeys also do commercials?

Well I have been doing them for a very long time. I did a lot of them! Radio people truly have owned that genre. Well I got into this linked in groups thing, and discovered about a dozen groups that are about doing "voice overs". Here's the deal:
These groups are populated by thinly credentialed experts that sometimes have SAG-AFTRA union cards, and they call themselves "voice actors". Who knew? "
Radio is where these commercials run, so why not get a radio pro? LOL
Ok so I deleted my linked in profile...and so it goes!

GREAT post. :D

Is it me, or does half of these 'voice actors' have speech impediments?
