Thank you very much for the fantastic recording!! It just needs a few more seconds of silence at the end, though (please leave 5 seconds of silence)

Thanks again!

Excellent recordings! Please remember to put in the ID3 tags next time, or check that they are ID3v2. Thank you! (no need to re-upload, I'll fix it during cataloging)

I've been trying to upload a recording for 2 days now, it keeps telling me the connection was interrupted. It could be my server being slow.

Nights Nothings Again by Carl Sandburg.

Let me know before i keep trying. Thank you!

Hi there,
I think the poem by Robert Frost I submitted above may not be PD as I now think it was published after 1923. Could you scrap it for now until we can be sure?

Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.

this site http://www.americanpoems.com/poets/robertfrost/12114 says it's from the volume "new hampshire", published in 1923, so I think we're OK

Hey there,

I've just listened to my recording again, and wanted to do another run, which turned out much better, i think.

Excellent reading! You really have an amazing voice!

Just remember to record in mono channel, though (yours was stereo).

Thanks for your great contribution!
