Hear Now the Words!

This is in the nature of an experiment, albeit a protracted one.

Having come up with the idea of “live–action audiobooks”, or live–streaming myself reading, I realized that the recordings I was making in the process could be edited & sent out later as audio transmissions.  aNONradio seemed like an ideal venue for this, in no small part because of its archive feature.

This is, then, a long–form spoken-word program, consisting mostly of my reading of classic science–fiction novels.  I hope you enjoy!

  • aNONradio timeslot :  15h UTC, Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Streaming on Toobnix LIVE! : often circa 22h UTC Sundays, with a call–in period during aNONradio OpenVoIP (but quite variable — listen for announcements)
  • PayPal : encourage the storyteller by leaving a tip
  • Patreon campaign :  tip the storyteller on a recurring monthly basis, and receive rewards — at the lowest tier, $1/month, you can download the individual story chapters (some free samples are available here)
