Seasons greetings

The Earshot Creative Review podcast plays great radio production with the people who make it. This is the last in the present series.

This festive edition comes direct from the Hippodrome Casino in London’s Leicester Square where some of our closest friends have gathered to enjoy some fun audio together and talk about radio production.

Clare Bowen of the RAB plays comedy radio ads that really sell, comedian Jake Yapp reveals what happened in the studio when he auditioned for the voice of cheese strings, Matt Deegan from Folder Media shares one of the latest “D Love” digital radio ads, producers Tim Johns and Chris Wood compare their experiences making trails for BBC Local Radio, Steve Martin plays an ad he heard on the radio in Liberia, competition finalists Mark Hulmes, Sefa Nyki and Jumoke Ogunkoya look back over the Hobsons Voicesearch 2012 challenge and voice artist and producer Helen Quigley shares her tips for the winner.

You’ll also hear audio from Gremlins Audio, a Church, a fish and chip shop, Jake Yapp’s radio show and Armstrong & Miller.

Hobsons Voicesearch 2012

We announce the ultimate winner of our competition to find and reward new British voice talent. Jumoke, Sefa, Mark and Scott have all faced studio challenges with us and our friends at Global Radio, the BBC and Reelworld but only one will land a twelve month professional representation contract with Hobsons. Listen to the podcast to discover who it is.
