In the Key of 'D'anzmayr - Watching Yourself Conduct
One comment I receive from many people after they learn I am on the radio is, "Oh...I can't STAND to listen to recordings of myself! Â Is it weird to hear yourself on the radio?" While some would say most of what I do is weird, on or off the air, I can understand their reaction. Â When I first heard a recording of my voice, my immediate thought was, "That's how I sound?" Â None of us sounds to others as we do to ourselves. Â I will not get into a long-winded discussion of bone-conduction, but suffice it to say we are always going to hear ourselves in ways others do not. Â What helps those of us in the radio business is to listen to recordings of ourselves, so we know how we sound to others when we do certain things. I asked ProMusica Music Director David Danzmayr if he ever watches himself conduct.
