I listened to the two short promos. Okay.
But wow! I also listened to the first hour of the reading. What can I say? Riveting, compelling, relevant.
I run out of adjectives to express my admiration for your and Winona's work. The readings are beautifully executed.
I will listen to the subsequent two parts as I have time.
I wouldn't express the following to most. But I well know your own admiration for animals, especially dogs. And I want
to tell you that as the text started unfolding by way of the readers, Taylor, who answers to Tata-Baba, our wonderful
springer-spaniel/border collie rescue, a five-year-old dog who lived in the wild until two years ago, lay down with me
of his own volition and listened to it with rapt attention. I think it was not only the great musical background score
that attracted him, but he was attracted by the tonalities of the speakers' voices conveying information and truthful
interpretations of that information. Tata-Baba is a wise one indeed who teaches many things to me as well as to the
neighborhood's children. Again, I would not say this to many others, but his unusual marked attention to this media
rendition made me appreciate it all the more.
I salute this work and will be recommending it to discerning friends after I listen to the final two hour readings.
Barbara, a high school and college friend of mine long resident in Australia and interested in natiive peoples and
issues there, will likely find the text of great value. Though I can't with certainty predict it, her interest may
even serve to generate sales of the physical book Down Under. Barbara, by the way, is a noted ancient fossil hunter
Siempre tu amigo-hermano,
KGHI FM 91.5 located in Westport Washington and servicing the Central Washington Coast would like to run the 3-part
series on the next three Mondays at 6pm PST. I hope that we have everyone's permission to go ahead with this airing.
Dear Joe and Suzanne,
This looks like a really great production. I've forwarded it on to the Appleton Foudation Board members in the hopes that
they will all take a listen. Joe, any time that you are ready to re-submit your proposal Appleton is ready to consider it.
At the Maggie Dickson/Willow Creek Kiwanis Annual Christmas Bazaar when I mentioned the audio production of The
Militarization of Indian Country, George Blake told me he remembers when his father would move as quick as he
could to see the planes fly through Mill Creek gap. "He would say, I'm glad to see those planes up there." George
explained his Dad was a Merchant Marine and was protected by American Navy planes. He also said another friend of his
talked about hearing helicopters during local forest fires. He would say, "that sound reminds me of laying in a rice
patty wounded and knowing they were coming to take me home." George said, "there are many different ways to think
about the topic." – JRO
"I listened to the program today. I like the production work you did."
"I listened to the last half of the first hour and all of the second. As I listened I would think how nice it would
have been to get the quotes said again by the actual people who said them. Of course if they were still with us. But
then I know what went into doing what you did. Natalie came across real well and Brian was surprisingly good. I knew
he's a great singer, but I didn’t know he read so well, too."
Thank you for reading this. And please feel free to add your comments
