ABC broadcaster Red Symons created a brief musical piece with the lyrics, It's on again, Dan Lonergan. It's quite a catchy little tune. I just adore sports broadcaster Dan's broad Aussie accent, his a little bit raspy voice and its tone, and the slightly lazy laconicness (yes, I know that is is a double). I won't disappoint myself by hearing him calling football. I may have fallen in love with a voice but at least I knew what he looked like.
I am not sure that Emily Dean from Absolute Radio makes me feel at all lustful, but I certainly like her voice. If I was seeking a fag hag, she would be high on my list. While I may sing the praises of our ABC, UK's BBC, Canada's CBC and US PBS, I will also give a huge plug to the commercial Absolute Radio in the UK and especially the Frank Skinner show, where Emily is a weekly guest. She has a brilliant rapier wit and uses her voice to great comedic effect. He proper job is fashioning editor of a fashion magazine. I had been listening to her for a long time before I checked to see what she looked like and guess what? She was as far from my mental image of her as I could imagine. Instead of a round faced blonde, I found she was dark haired and sharp featured.
But then I went further. I You Tubed her and I am sorry I did because seeing her speaking just does not match me hearing her speaking. Go to about 5 minutes and 50 seconds. Warning, if you are of a delicate nature, she is talking about The Oscars red carpet.
This is how I much prefer Emily Dean, as she and her co-hosts talk about Scratching Fanny.
Whetted your appetite? Here she is again talking about an offer from the sexiest man in Kent. You can download the podcasts from Absolute Radio and you can choose your decade of music to listen to from the 60s to the 00s.
