Gary Barlow, BBC Radio & beyond...

"All the stars are coming out tonight,
they're lighting up the sky tonight,
for you..."
- Gary Barlow

There was magic in the air
as the first wave of 150,000 Take That fans descended on Glasgow for their 3 night show at Hampden Park....but thankfully, I seemed to avoid the mania while in
the city yesterday! I was at Pacific Quay, the media quarter, to record promos for the upcoming schedule on BBC Radio Scotland...and yes, maybe the trip involved some pre-summer vacation shopping too. :)

Summer Holidays
27 June to 8 July 2011 (10 days)
18 to 22 July 2011 (5 days)

Meanwhile, if you'd like to arrange a face-to-face recording session at your chosen studio in the city - Glasgow, Edinburgh or further afield - just holler, because I do love an excuse to visit, even if it's not to watch Robbie's hip-shakin' dance moves...

Vicky Watt is a Scottish female voice over artist, available daily from her professional home studio by the sea. She'll also happily travel to your chosen studio in the city for face-to-face voice sessions. For more information, please go to her main page at www.vickywatt.co.uk.

...Barnardos

It's been a busy little day - this longest day of the year.... and despite the rain, a really good one! I've just voiced an in-store for Barnardos, the UK's leading children's charity.

"Barnardos believe in the potential of every child
and young person
, no matter who they are, what they have done
or what they have been through
"

That's an ethos well worth promoting and supporting! When working with my favourite social initiatives and charities - like Barnardos - it's my policy to give back at least 50% of my fee. So, if you're working on humanitarian or environmental campaigns, please check out my Ethical Policy to find out more.

...yesterday's child.

”We are your own children. You are deciding what kind
of world we will grow up in. Parents should be able to
comfort their children by saying everything's going to
be alright, we’re doing the best we can and
it’s not the end of the world...
You are what you do, not what you say.
I challenge you, please make your
actions reflect your words.”

- Severn Suzuki Age 13, 1992

...fabulousness


"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? ...Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you...As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."


- Marianne Williamson
(a quote sometimes attributed to Nelson Mandela)
