Glass on the radio voice

<< Back to article

“There are different versions of the radio voice. There’s the right-wing Rush Limbaugh wannabe voice. There’s the fake Howard Stern wannabe voice. There’s a very particular public radio announcer voice, which has two variations: the old version and the young version. The old version is a little more formal and the new version has a bit of a stutter step in it. The public radio voice is a very reasonable voice. What it carries with it is utter reasonableness, you know, in every part of it.”
