New AMV episodes on the way and a change

By , 6 March, 2012, 4 Comments

After writing the last two AMV episodes (AMV46 and AMV47) I found myself in the right place to continue on with more stories. A number of new AMV episodes are thus in the works.
But it also occurred to me, after 6 years of generally giving away episodes of AMV for free, that I would like to start selling them for a small price – I’m thinking $2 per episode. You can also name your own price if that suits your financial circumstance – even a single penny is fine. I want to get a sense of how many people are willing to pay a small amount for the stories and additionally I am curious what that value is. Maybe 2 dollars is too much, maybe it’s too little.
Supporting me in this way will permit me to continue to focus as much of my attention as possible on recording the curious events from my life here in Lemon. I absolutely understand that some listeners can’t afford to pay – some don’t like to – and that’s fine. I have no judgement or further thought at all about that. So from now on you may see the little Donate button, like the one that follows:

The Christmas Skater

By , 10 December, 2011, No Comment

On the next episode of The Radio Ghost, I’ll be playing The Christmas Skater and talking a bit about it with the listeners. The story is played yearly on XM and Sirius satellite radio (thank you Ron & Fez!). It’s also heard on Public Radio stations across the country and has aired in the UK and Australia. My friend Olivia Wilder will also be including it the second part of her Christmas show.

The story has also been picked up by Spoken Ink and will be for sale soon exclusively through their site. Because of that, I will be taking down the free version (as part of the arrangement with Spoken Ink, I can’t give it away anymore).

But the Spoken Ink deal isn’t done, so for this Christmas at least, it’s still free! If you have the desire, you can also purchase the full story of The Christmas Skater on iTunes: The Christmas Skater - Single - Sherwin Sleeves

But the free version is still here and will be until the Spoken Ink ink dries:

“Frog & Toad – All Year” Audio for the book

By , 22 October, 2010, 4 Comments

When I was a kid I used to love to go to the library and listen to prerecorded stories. There was a small table in the kid’s section of the library and at the center was a special wooden box full of strange, baby blue headphones. The cords went secretly down into the floor and they were always very tangled. There was a small shelf nearby and you could pick out a book and take it up to the librarian and she’d set some record spinning. I remember listening to Where the Wild Things Are and the Dr. Seuss books.

I also remember finding this process of getting the librarian to play the record difficult. I was painfully shy and it seemed to me that the librarians always sighed when I held up a book and asked them to play it. Maybe the audio system was tricky or maybe they didn’t admire the concept of listening to a story via “modern technology.”

But for me listening to these stories being read out as I flipped through the pages was so transporting. I even loved the little bell noises that meant it was time to turn the page. Sometimes the reader would even say it…”Turn the page…” And I remember that I would sometimes wander away from the library muttering “turn the page…” to myself.

We’ve just started Sam on the modern version. Books with CDs. We only have one – an Arthur book that Sam picked out. But the selection at Borders was so small that I thought I’d record a few books that we have at home, do-it-yourself style.

The first one is “Frog & Toad – All Year”. I dashed off a little bit of incidental music, so it’s five stories and some music. And then bell noise to turn the page. Very fun to do. Sam especially loves the song that follows “The Surprise” story.

I thought other people might have the book and not the audio and so I thought I’d post. The stories are good enough on their own though – so if you don’t have the book, it would still be fun to listen to in the car.
