Hi April,

For sections 21 and 22, Larry (silverquill) and I will be doing these dialogues as duets with both of us reading parts. He will send me his lines and I will incorporate and edit into one finished file and upload,

Please add him as a reader to these two sections as well. The system is set up to allow that, just assign him both sections as well just like you would do for any reader.

Thanks!
Nemo

Hey Kevin!

Great readings, a pleasure to listen to. You have a bit of a Garrison Keillor vibe going on that I like!

For section 40 the only note I have is at around 0:07, in the intro after the poem title and author name, you say "This LibriVox recording is in the public domain". This is not needed as you also say it at the end of the recording where it should be, so you could cut this out. With that being said, it's no big deal and doesn't hurt anything by being in there twice. Your call.

For section 41 - At around 3:00, the text is "as though unseen roses grazed him." .... I hear you say "gazed" instead of "grazed" which changes the meaning. Also from about 3:35 to 3:55 I hear what sounds like crows cawing in the background. It's a little distracting, but I don't think it ruins the recording. I thought I'd just note it and since you are fixing "gazed", maybe you can take another listen to that section and see if you want to record it again. Just let me know if you do for the spot PL!

Thanks much!
Nemo

Thank you.

I noticed the birds and am trying to pretend they are not there in the background. Hahah!

I'll make fixes to both recordings.

I would like to read Section 25 (The Mountebank Criticizes).

By the way, the opening post needs amending - because Maxwell Bodenheim died before 1955 his work is in the public domain in Australia.

Cheers
