a little labor day fun for our armed forces

AFN Medaillon

The annual final summer blasts that take place on beaches and in backyards all across America this Labor Day weekend usually include some kind of countdown on local radio stations. My friends at the Armed Forces Network are trying to provide a little bit of that hometown feel for our troops via AFN’s ten stations across in the Middle East. They’re presenting the 72 Mega Mix Music A-Z Countdown.

As with Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, a number of my professional voice over collegues were tapped for service and honored to answer the call. I did voice imaging for the station disc jockeys as well as radio station imaging for voice talents DB Cooper and Frank Frederick. I called on character voice actress Kara Edwards to help me with a little girl voice singing her ABC’s in DB and Frank’s ID’s.

Voice talent and product Todd Ellis also assisted in the project, producing for voice talent Diane Maggipinto and Bill Elder. As always, a great job by all.

The heat and the danger seem endless for our men and women in the Middle East (and for that matter all around the globe). We all hope we were able to bring a bit of home town fun to their current journey. Stay safe. And thank you!

  1. Peter-

    Your poor readers that may now be subjected to a full minute of me singing my abc’s! I feel for anyone that clicks on that link. I had no idea how hard it was to hit the letter ‘e’ when using my highest voice- even the dog cried. As for everyone else- great work! I always love the production and voices on these things 🙂 Thanks for including me!


  2. Hi Kara!

    Your ABC’s made the cuts.

    The mark of a well trained character actress is when a producer (me) comes up with an idea and has only one voice in mind (yours).

    Thanks for your help!

    Best always,
