His work is found on Radio like GO COUNTRY in L.A., TV Promo work such as FX Network and HBO, TV Affiliate, Commercial and more. Neil is also, possibly, the biggest football fan I know…like right up to the edge of annoying without quite crossing over. You’ll never guess which team he is out of his mind for by going to his website or looking at the ...

I can safely say my guest is a “ROCK GUY” and that is both a compliment and true.  He would also be the first to tell you it’s what he loves and what he has done his entire career.  The thing is, he also does a ton more. Malcom Ryker is the Creative Services Director (Radio Imaging) at iHeartMedia San Diego. Malcom also serves as the “Rock Guy” iHeart’s national production team.  He voices countl...

Steve Taylor has been on an impressive RISE over the last few years.  For me, I went from sort of knowing of him and hearing him some places…to befriending him and hearing him EVERYWHERE!  Based on his work with iHeart Radio Stations, TV Networks and Local TV Affiliates… and everything else he does… he might be one of the most “heard” voice actors working today. From a variety of National and Local rad...

A veteran Voice Actor, Mark Peeples is heard…everywhere. Radio, TV Affiliate are the BIG ones for Mark but he also reads Promo, Trailers, Commercial, Late Night TV bits and more in his Alabama studio.  Mark started in Radio but shifted to Voiceover pretty early in his career in Atlanta.  One of his big “breaks” was for Turner and as you will hear it basically all got rolling from there.  I kick off the interview w...

Roger Keeler is UNIQUE.  He is also immensely talented, creative, experienced, off-beat, musical, and highly SKILLED in all things audio. BUT above all else – UNIQUE. This is one of the few people I wanted to have on for a second time. When I am out in the wild talking Imaging with other pros his name comes up often.  I doubt he knows how many people look up to him.  His skills are wide ranging but he excels at one of the mos...

Our guest, Dan Mumford, spent a decade at RADIO 1 in the UK starting at age 25. He then had some other Radio Imaging related jobs but quickly found his place as a successful music and sound design producer/composer/engineer.  We discuss his music background, radio background and how they intersect. Of course we talk tech — you better check out the pics of his studio including his modular synth! Maybe most importantly we get i...

To finish off 2018 in style I decided the show would require a TEAM as opposed to ONE guest.  In fact, I welcome not just “a” team but perhaps THE team.  The 7-man Imaging Collective at CAPITAL and CAPITAL XTRA are ALL guests on the show.  We commandeered the big studio at Capital and even had multiple remote locations mixed in. I can’t begin to summarize everything we discussed but I did my best to cover most of ...

I should lead with one of the big reasons I wanted Nik Smon on the show:  He uses Ableton.  Music producers, especially electronic producers, might say, “So what?”  But in the Radio Imaging world it’s rather rare to work in this DAW.
(Warning – Voice talents or NOT-so-nerdy-audiophiles – we get super nerdy with audio geekery)
I saw Nik in action on stage at the Imaging Days in Amsterdam. He was method...

“Write it down. Write down what you want. Write down your goals.”

I’ll lead off this post with those wise words provided from my guest, Rich Van Slyke. Sort of seems obvious…yet is it?  How many of us actually do that?  I do not.
On top of being a stellar Radio Imaging Voice, Rich is bringing some perspective today!  The type of perspective that comes from many years of experience , quality experience. He i...

Brad is the Network Imaging Producer for NOVA Entertainment based in Sydney, Australia.  Great gig for a seasoned veteran of the industry…or for someone who has been in for 5 YEARS and is all of 24 YEARS OLD!  You wouldn’t know how old or young he is by talking to him.  You will know how much passion and love he has for the Radio Imaging Production industry and Radio in general.  I would list some of the many places he&...

The transition from a successful career on-the-air in radio to independent full-time voice artist is not exactly an easy proposition and certainly not as easy as some people might expect it to be. Denver-based talent Josh Goodman is a multi-faceted voiceover artist who is LEGIT good at all the various….facets… and has navigated that radio to voice transition in a methodical, measured and fortuitous manner.  Josh Goodman...

UPDATE: I am not going to say Ron owes me $10 (I don’t think he accepted my bet) but today, June 7th 2018, Ron was able to announce he is joining the team at Reel World.  A GREAT Get for them!
The entire staff at the Producers Podcast (me) wishes him continued world domination and success.

After this interview, and based on our conversations away from the show, I can safely say that Scott Matthews LOVES radio and is proud to make it his primary focus.  Scott Matthews is a Radio Imaging Voice. I think I could leave it there and he would be fine with that.  But alas that is not all Scott is known for.  Yes, Scott is heard as Brand Voice on Radio Stations, in various radio formats, around the world.  It would take me to...
