Over at Airy Persiflage, Walter O’Hara – known to his friends as Mister Nizz – gives a fine rendition of “I Had A Hammer”. I am very fond of the grain of his voice, which has the curious quality of making me believe every word of what he tells me. There is also a pleasingly ramshackle air to his podcast, as if he has simply plopped himself down in front of a microphone for a few minutes in between feeding the hens or fixing the roof. (I should make it plain here that I am wholly unacquainted with Mr O’Hara and have no idea how he spends his days.)
Links to his earlier readings from the Hooting Yard Treasury O’ Prose can be found here.
Why, thank you. Your description of my modest audio efforts is not far wrong. At least the plopping, feeding hens and fixing the roof part.
