Hi Larry
There are 2 places in the script for Dick's family where the phrases "he said" and "the doctor replied" are colour coded for me when they should obviously be read by the narrator. Might be worth checking that the narrator included these.
Thank you for catching those two errors. :thumbs:
Corrected file has been uploaded.

I'll let Tom know if we need to add the lines.

Section 16 PL notes:
Lovely reading, Tommy; this poem is indeed tragic.
06:04 5 seconds of silence at end of file will suffice; currently there are 11.6

Sections 19, 34, and 45 PL notes:
Michele, so good to hear your voice on this project. The poems are beautifully read. Your reading of "The Suicide" gave me goosebumps. The only issue is that the wrong outro is used after each poem. The outro should be "End of poem" not "End of [poem name]." For example, for Section 19, the outro should be "End of poem" not "End of 'The Suicide.'"

Section 56 is PL OK - I loved this rhythm of this poem, Jenn.

Section 58 is spot check PL OK.

Caught! My long-windedness reared its sleepy head once again. Not to worry, I lopped it off (now down to 06:10):

Happens to me too. :roll:

Stand by -- I may have a missed line (that I missed) in your narrator part.

Same with all 3 outros.
I generally end any poems, stories or chapters I read by repeating the title, as it helps listeners reconnect with what they just heard and maybe remember it better. It serves the exact same purpose as denoting "end of poem", with lagniappe, but I'll change them if you insist. Some people add their names, locations, dates and websites to the Outro and that's allowed too.

Of course, if the Outro required End of Section #, or Chapter #, that's got to go there.

Well, we do use a special abbreviated format for collections of poems so that the intros and outros don't get too repetitive with the short poems. I guess I would prefer just, "End of poem. This recording is in the public domain" for uniformity. But, I won't insist on it.
