Today was quite productive, with about 9 hours recording time logged in. JT Turner finished recording THE BOOK OF NONSENSE, our first Audio Book, produced by Wavern Audio, a division of CRT. Written by David Michael Slater, its a fun little story with some really nice twists to it.
This fall on Sirius/XM we will have a new show on weekends,where we will present some new books for kids, read by various CRT players. No music, sound effects - just good old fashioned story telling.
Then we did pick-ups for ZORRO AND THE PIRATE RAIDERS, followed by two new episodes of JARREM LEE - GHOST HUNTER. A really fun night of recording. Joe Caliendo Jr. returned to the CRT mics, having been away for 10 years. Ronni Marshak, who directed me in THE LION IN WINTER seven years ago turned in an awesome performance in JARREM, and newcomer Lucien Spelman was amazing with a variety of cool voices, in a number of different roles. Mark Thurner played a small role in ZORRO. We really need to get him in a larger role - he's quite good! Anastas Varinos guested in a JARREM LEE, his first time at the mic since THE HALLOWEEN TREE, and Donna Evans, visiting from England, took a turn as well in a JARREM. Donna was recording with me 20 years ago, then she moved to the UK.
I also want to welcome Jesse Zoller to the CRT Post Production Team! Jesse will be taking on our PERRY MASON series, after the departure of Chris Snyder from CRT.

Tonight we record episodes 5 and 6 of our new series, JARREM LEE - GHOST HUNTER. These shows are really turning out to be a lot of fun; I just heard the completed first two episodes and I thought they sounded great! M.J. Cogburn is doing some fantastic post production work, and Gareth Tilley has created some very cool and engaging stories.
