You've heard the voice for years but likely never knew his name or seen his picture. Frank Tavares joins us on Eastern Standard.
If you've listened to NPR for more than 20 minutes, you've likely heard the voice of Frank Tavares. Although you may have never known his name, he's been the voice that has told us of the businesses and organizations that help pay for the network programming, ending with the familiar identifier, "This is NPR.."
A sample of the iconic voice of NPR's underwriting credits.
Here's the audio from the entire show. Enjoy and let us know what you think.
"The trouble is not in your set." Difficulties that kept NPR's Morning Edition off the air for most of the hour between 6:00 and 7:00 am Monday originated at NPR in Washington. By way of background, NPR's ENTIRE operation has been moved into new facilities during recent weeks. WEKU apologizes for the inconvenience and disruption. We are in communication with NPR's technicians and management to discover what happened and we are confident that they are doing whatever they can to avoid future incidents of this type.
Thanks for your understanding and continued support.
