Episode 4 - Cashier number four please
Your voice is one the most personal things about any human being. Could you imagine giving it to a computer?
That’s exactly what Kathy Somers did in the early 90s and you can hear her directing customers to cashiers to this day.
Find out how she became the voice of various shops, how people react when she reveals her secret identity, and what her family thinks of it all.
P.S. I’ve done a blog post about podcasting that I think you might enjoy. You can read it at http://www.anecdote.fm
Episode 3 - Nokia ringtone
Remember that ringtone we *all* had in the 90s/early 2000s? Well, that ringtone basically exists because of Anssi Vanjoki.
Those three seconds of music (and the technology behind them) helped to create the entire ringtone industry. The original mobile gold rush.
Find out why the tune was created, how it tracked the rise and fall of one of the world’s biggest mobile phone companies and what ringtone Anssi has now.
And if you’re interested, you’ll find a load of old Nokia and ringtone adverts at http://www.Anecdote.fm
Episode 2 - Coca-Cola's Pop & Pour
Coca-Cola’s logo is instantly recognisable and a lot of that is down to the company’s advertising.
This week’s episode is all about the woman behind a significant part of those adverts.
Suzanne Ciani created the ‘Pop & Pour’, a jingle that was used as Coca-Cola was growing in the 70s.
