Books on the Radio Demo feat. Monique Trottier, Benjamin Brown Books

Ok!  After a near interminable wait we have the Books on the Radio demo for your listening pleasure.  Just click the link in the previous sentence and pump the volume.

But actually, wait.

Since it’s a demo and I’m working with a new handheld voice recorder and some weird editing software there’s some uneven patches to the sound.  The recording is a little rough around the edges, as they say, but that’s all on me and I’ll get that stuff worked out soon enough.

The first bit is Monique Trottier recorded live at the Shebeen Whiskey Bar in downtown Vancouver.  It’s her opening remarks to a large gathering of people who came to hear her speak on her experiences at South by Southwest earlier this year.

I will be doing another interview with Monique tomorrow where we will hopefully expand on her ideas here and explore other areas that she has barely touched on here.

The second bit is an excerpt from a conversation that I had with Meghan Spong and Christopher Aslan from Benjamin Brown Books at their offices a few weeks ago.  Will try to punch up the sound and edit down the entire interview for re-posting later.

Thanks everybody.  More coming soon.

    That’s fabulous! And I bet you don’t know that Meghan and I worked together at Raincoast Books many moons ago.

    Can’t wait to hear the segment.
