May 14, 2012

The heat of the day makes me want to hide out inside and do some editing in the air conditioned luxury of Studio 2, here at KBOO Community Radio in Portland. I am editing the audio book Three Dead Princes, that we recorded in the cold and rainy part of the Spring.

The book is Three Dead Princes, a fairytale by Danbert Nobacon, founding member of the band Chumbawamba. The book was published by Exterminating Angel Press in October, 2010. On October 4th, 2010 Danbert was reading at the Powell’s on Hawthorne, and a few of us KBOO folks went to the event. During the QandA, an audience member asked about plans for an audiobook, of which there were none. “That’s what we do!” came a silent chorus of KBOO people, and so we worked on making it happen! Between coordinating with publisher Tod Davies, Danbert, and getting a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council, months past, paths were made through untrodden woods and fields, and we began the project in earnest in February, 2012.
