The Shepherd
« on: December 23, 2017, 12:01:34 am »
Hi folks:

I just listened to this superb reading on cbc.ca.  It was broadcast this evening on "As It Happens". 

"Fireside Al" Maitland reads Frederick Forsyth's "The Shepherd"

http://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/fireside-al-maitland-reads-frederick-forsyth-s-the-shepherd-1.3379102?autoplay=true


Just try and keep your heart from pounding as you listen.  Enjoy!

Wishing all who celebrate Christmas a wonderful one and a sweet new year.

Cheers!

Andy

I couldn't agree more.  Sometimes your imagination paints the best visuals. It's so nice to immerse oneself in a well-read story without the distraction of a video.

Thanks for posting the link Andy. Just listened to it last night through iTunes Podcast episodes (search for The Shepherd). Great reading. I don’t know about you but I think radio episodes are best listened to using earphones, etc. to bring out voice inflections and to drown out external noises.

Hi @Richard_RC_Guy ,

I agree.  I did the next best thing and listened to it through my computer speakers in a perfectly quiet room.   It was nice to be able to repeat segments if I missed a few words.

Glad you enjoyed it.

Cheers!

Andy

Thanks Andy...
Takes me back to the fireside in a darkened living room on a winter's evening with my family, listening to the BBC Wednesday Night Play on the wireless.  It's all in your head.  Wonderful pictures, limited only by ones imagination.  Beats CGI hands down.
