I have made many appearances on radio including contributions to Celtic Connections, The Radio Cafe, The Comedy Cafe and MacAulay&CoI have also recorded a range of voiceovers for public health campaigns, commercials and music albums.

I recently appeared on BBC Radio Scotland’s Peoplewatch, a spoof natural history comedy show written by a couple of very funny friends of mine, Ross ‘Teddy’ Craig and Allan Miller.  Directed and Produced by Turan Ali.  I co-hosted in character as Lorraine Kelly.

 Meantime, here’s a wee voiceover I did for this young, talented musician;
yes, I do get to do all the nice jobs…

I was making a voiceover to accompany an album release and promo video for Callum Beattie.  My first choice was pretty obvious, who else but the talented Keara Murphy.  Keara came into the studio and delivered ‘to a T’ exactly the energy, vibe and commercial tone I was looking for. Ever the consummate professional, Keara’s talents for voiceover work are highly recommended and
I would use her every single time
