If you have been listening to our broadcast for the past week, you will notice that we now have an official station announcer for the broadcast. She is a young girl from Northern Ireland who has agreed to produce a number of station announcements over the next few months.

Please give us some feedback on her voice. What do you think of her brogue? Can you understand her? Should we have her produce some more station cuts?

Thanks for your feedback! smile.gif

I know I posted my answer somewhere else, but her voice is just that goooood. Wanted to say it again. biggrin.gif beer_mug.gif

Posted by: ranger 13-Sep-2003, 03:12 PM
Oh yeah. Like the choice of Avatar, too. Although not my fave character, anything to promote Tolkien. (As if he actually needs promoting!) thumbs_up.gif beer_mug.gif

Posted by: MDF3530 13-Sep-2003, 04:20 PM
I like her. She sounds like a hottie biggrin.gif .

Posted by: ranger 13-Sep-2003, 10:18 PM
I think hottie is an understatement. Maybe it's just because I don't get to hear someone speak like that very often. (Only on TV).

Posted by: scottish2 14-Sep-2003, 05:29 AM
Yeah she's a keeper. I'd like to hear some Scottish accents as well maybe see if we can get a Scottish announcer as well and mix up the anouncements. wink.gif smile.gif thumbs_up.gif walkman.gif

Posted by: barddas 14-Sep-2003, 06:30 AM
Aye, she's a keeper. I do agree with Scottish2 though. A nice Scottish accent would be nice too. wink.gif wink.gif But yes I do think they sound very nice.

Thanks for all of your hard work Paul!!!!! beer_mug.gif

ARCK Now there are 2 no votes wallbash.gif

Posted by: shycartech 18-Sep-2003, 11:07 PM
If there is no explanation for the no votes, they shouldn't be counted.
Why vote no if you can't explain?
I can explain my YES vote- she sounds like a warm comforting voice from home far away.
Thanx

Posted by: Elspeth 19-Sep-2003, 07:49 AM
She's great, but agree would like to hear Scottish brogue as well. Preferably that of a hot MALE Scot. Equal time is only fair. happy.gif

Posted by: stonesoupmix 20-Sep-2003, 04:37 PM
Definitely a keeper. I too agree with scottish2, a lovely scot accent would add a wonderful touch. Keep up the the great work on the site.

Your wish is our command! We will see about a "hot MALE Scot" for our next batch of station scripts!

We have just received 10 new station announcements from Rebecca (our announcer), but it may be a number of weeks before we are done with the sound and effects mixing.

Posted by: ranger 23-Sep-2003, 09:20 PM
Only one question. Does Rebecca have a website? naughty.gif naughty.gif angel_not.gif

OK. As long as a guy with a dreamy Scottish accent greets me when I connect with the station, I'm happy. tongue.gif Better yet, combine audio with a visual. Gorgeous man in a kilt speaking with a dreamy accent......... wink1.gif Now I'm really happy. thumbup.gif

Posted by: scottish2 25-Sep-2003, 03:39 PM
But being of Scottish decent I prefer a Scottish Brogue No offense meant to Rebecca she's definately a plus for the site! But that is why I mentioned a Scottish female Brogue.

Posted by: Catriona 25-Sep-2003, 03:41 PM
As long as it isn't a Sean Connery 'soundalike'....

And, can I just say that I am shocked and dismayed that neither Tartangal nor myself have been approached and begged to make announcements.... We would complement each other very well - her Weegie accent and my Edimbra one... biggrin.gif

Well offer up at least, us Guys wouldn't mind. Nothing sweeter then a great Scottish female Brogue. The Paul can work on getting a guy for you gals wink.gif

Yeah saw that a lot when looking for a good pic but the one was so popular awhile back figured you had seen it already so wanted a new one.

Posted by: Annabelle 25-Sep-2003, 08:12 PM
Hey I love her accent, but could we get a guy once in a while...you know wee women folk have visions too. So give us a guy's voice once in a while...

Probably when, as I quote from earlier, I shave my dog's arse and take a picture of it. (Shadows, I think) It would probably come out better.

Don't recall seeing yours, either. (Bikini optional)

Posted by: Elspeth 25-Sep-2003, 09:22 PM
You're the one who offered! smile.gif


I don't do pictures, they're against my religion (or something...)
Actually, I had a long discussion just lately as to how inserting pictures into a correspondence doesn't bring reality, for the mind isn't the illusion, the picture is.

If you keep them confused, they forget the question..... cool.gif

Posted by: ranger 25-Sep-2003, 10:04 PM
How could a picture confuse a conversation?

I actually don't mind posting mine, but all I have is my driver's license photo. And we all know how they usually turn out. bag.gif mummy.gif biggrin.gif

Posted by: Elspeth 25-Sep-2003, 10:12 PM
My favorite driver's license photo was this guy I knew, he shaved off half of his mustache for the shot........

Posted by: Boudica123 19-Oct-2003, 11:21 PM
YEA SHE SOUNDS GOOD FOR AN ANNOUNCER i HATE BORING ONES WITH NO ACCENTS..... YEA MORE ACCENTS WOULD BE COOL LIKE ENGLISH SCOTTISH

Posted by: A Shrule Egan 26-Oct-2003, 02:25 PM
Not sure why we really needed a poll for this one. This was a no-brainer. Paul, you are moving in the right direction.
As for the two people who voted against....... rip_1.gif

Posted by: Angel Whitefang 06-Nov-2003, 02:30 PM
I think she is wonderful, I can understand every word she says. Please keep her and have her do as many cuts as possible.!! Fantastic choice!
Blessed Be,

Love the voice,

For Elspeth, this is not a hottie in a kilt, but an Irishman and his friend. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Eamon506 16-Dec-2003, 01:53 PM
I am a bit late on the post, here, but I had to throw my 2 cents in (make it 2 dollars worth!). Keep her.......PLEASE! And you could sure play a few more station ID's as well wink.gif

Posted by: rock_serenade 01-Mar-2004, 05:14 PM
Her voice sounds great though it seems as though she is trying to hide her accent to hard.

Posted by: Macfive 01-Mar-2004, 08:28 PM
Her name is Rebecca and she is from Ireland. We will hopefully be getting some new station ID's from her real soon!

Posted by: silverdragon 02-Mar-2004, 12:37 PM
New station ID's with that lovely lilt? Yea!

Posted by: ChuckDenton 08-Apr-2004, 11:11 PM
Oh, please keep her!! I wish my wife would fake such a brogue. I could listen to her for hours.

Please keep her.

I also think that whoever voted no meant to hit the yes button. It had to be a slip of the finger...

Well I just joined the group so I didn't notice the difference (haha) but I like her a lot. She's isn't obnoxious, she has a very relaxing voice. Keep her! velho.gif

P.S. I LOVE dragons, so you will always see the dragon emoticon from now on! haha!

Posted by: Ceciliastar1 10-Jun-2004, 01:40 PM
Ewww! I didn't even notice that the dragon ate the magician!!! I am highly scandalized now (lol), I will being changing my emoticon though, I don't like bad dragons (that sounds really weird) usaflag.gif

Posted by: Camchak 19-Jun-2004, 06:40 PM
Aye, she sounds great! If you do get rid of her can I have her??? (Joking I think...) Keep her, she is great! cool.gif

Posted by: Macfive 20-Jun-2004, 02:16 AM
She's taking a little break from the broadcast, but Rebecca will be back soon with some new voice overs for your listening enjoyment!

Posted by: sir_tal 17-Sep-2004, 03:08 PM
Does Rebecca have a website? Has she considered doing Books on CD/Tape, etc? Dang, I would buy and listen to ANY book if it was read by her. wink.gif

We are currently working with her now on expanding her presence on the station. Probably in a few weeks you will hear some new announcements. She does have a terrific voice! wink.gif

Posted by: Muileach 18-Sep-2004, 02:35 PM
She does have a terrific voice, and I really like the new promos with the background music. It would be nice to have some promos with a man's voice, though, preferably with a Scottish accent.

Posted by: Macfive 19-Sep-2004, 05:55 PM
The Voice of Highlander Radio reveals herself! Our main page now has a recent picture of Rebecca!

She is a very talented girl from Ireland and we will be using her exclusively for our broadcast for station promos, sponsor trailers and more.

We do hope to compliment her voice with a male voice too, possibly from Scotland as suggested.

Posted by: Tassiecelt 20-Sep-2004, 07:15 AM
As I've said before, I think she is wonderful, I have a thing about Irish women, especially when they sing -Moya Brennan, Mary Dillon (Deanta), Sinead O'Connor, Cathy Jordan (Dervish) and the list goes on.

Now we have Rebecca, I love her, she's great!

Posted by: sir_tal 20-Sep-2004, 11:36 AM
Oh my...she is stunning. My wife agrees! Thank you macfive, for posting that picture. Absolutely gorgeous.

Mac, perhaps you should place her image in the banner, rather than the red head.

I say the scot from the Alexander Keiths ads. (I thought I'd posted this already. *scratches head* )

Posted by: CelticRose 24-Sep-2004, 01:27 AM
Hey! I really like her and loved the recent photo of her too! she looks and sounds like a real beauty. She is a keeper as far as I am concerned, and I agree that maybe you should put her image in the banner instead of the other. Just a thought.
