Highlights

Customer and client service is where I focus. I've been doing this too long to just settle. We don't stop until you say "That's what I'm after." Although perfectly capable of going over the top for a project a warm, smooth, rich delivery is my forte. Narrations, radio and TV imaging and audio book recordings a specialty. Also very easy to work with. You may count on fast turn around times with audio edited. We will work on your project until you are completely happy with it. I truly hope to hear from you.

Experience

Reading between the lines of your copy is what's it's about with me. The right pauses and phrasing is what I'm most keen to. Conveying the message just as you're hearing it in your head.
Behind a mic since 1976 and have never stopped trying to improve through reading, taking seminars, webinars and of course just practice and working it.

Aside from voice work I offer editing, full production and radio voicetracking services.

I generally work with mp3 and WAV files but am happy to mail CD's as well.
Thank you for stopping by my page and I wish you great success with your projects and your company.

"It is my pleasure to give two thumbs up for Larry. He has been there for me so many times and has gone above and beyond at twelfth hour. When I waited weeks for someone else to do a job and would get incredibly frustrated I knew I could always come to him for the most professional voice and in a timely manner. He has been my saving grace on more than several occasions. His professionalism and general kindness in a busy environment is a breath of fresh air. Thank you Larry for all you do!!!"

Quoted from Bob Doll's book entitled "The Radio Funny Book" available at Amazon.com.

"For 25 years Larry Long has been one the "best voices" in the Kalamazoo Michigan radio market. He started out during his sophomore year in high school (1974) as Sunday announcer at his hometown station WAOP Otsego.
In those days Larry was an aspiring guitar player. He practiced while the taped preachers were on. One Sunday he forgot to turn off the control room microphone. A couple of preachers had unscheduled pop guitar behind their sermons.

OK my guitar career was short.
