I have been a radio amateur since 1978, when I was licensed as G8RYQ, and then G4IFA in the UK. About 10 years later, I became AA7EE here in the US.
In a previous life (which ended in 2009), I was the “voice” that represented Virgin Megastores in the US; being both the voice in all radio and TV commercials, as well as the voice on the telephone on-hold systems, and the presenter of in-store programming in all the stores in the US. I produced all of the above too, with the exception of the TV commercials. I also did voice-overs for outside clients from time to time for companies such as United Airlines, Taco Bell, and BT Infonet, as well as doing on-air presentation at a few commercial radio stations in Reno and Los Angeles. Now I am semi-retired, which gives me a little time to figure out what to do with the next part of my life, as well as the time to try to get an antenna in the tree at the back of my apartment building with the slingshot I just bought.
Edit – 4 years after stopping work, I am still doing the same thing, so it looks as if semi-retirement might be gradually morphing into a permanent lifestyle of homebrewing, riding my bicycle around Oakland, and pandering to my cats 🙂
Extra Edit – Another 4 years on, little has changed so at this point, it looks as if there is no hope of my turning back into a productive member of society. My cats don’t mind though.
