Yes I'd be happy to do that, and record one of the voices. If you'll be one of the others, James, then we need two more.

Anyone?
Sounds fun. I’m up for it if you’ll have me!
Sounds like we have 3 of 4 needed readers and Amy's Ok

I removed 'First Stage:Moon" from my suggestion list; link and title are here.

First Stage: Moon by Dick Hetschel
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/58758

We need just one more reading volunteer.

Excellent. I've started going through the story and trying to work out who is talking when - not completely obvious. There are four people in the story - John, Mike, Williams and Wong. When I think I know who's who I'll circulate it.
I am a Statistician. One false move and you're a Statistic.

That will be great, Barry. You could do it like a play and have each of you say "John ready by Barry" and so forth.
Thanks,

12:16 In the sentence "if he didn't go willingly, the alien would only force him." the words "the alien" are repeated, please correct and resubmit.

All else is great just like always.

Thanks James

Hello Jane, you have a couple of technical issues that need to be corrected.

* The bit rate is variable bit rate, and it should be constant 128kps
* The opening silence should be about 1 second, it is about 3.5 seconds
* The ending silence should be about 5 seconds it ias about 2 seconds.

You need to make a couple corrections at the end of the recording.
* The last sentence "But no one heard him." is not in the recording nor is the Ending Announcement.

* There are several places with light taps or bumps example at 1:00, like maybe you have your hands on the mic. Some of them are durring silence others during your dialog. I don't think you need to try and fix it in this recording, but you should be aware of it in future recordings.

Otherwise a good first recording. You reading pace and consistency are good.

There are links to help with recording issues in the opening post of this collection

Amy, I noticed the file name is 078 not 079, do you need LW to fix that. I did not notice until I marked it PL ok.
