HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I started broadcasting as child actor with BBC Northern Ireland.
Worked in producing radio programmes with the RAF in England from 17 - 21.
Then became continuity presenter with top TV station UTV in Belfast.
1976 head hunted by brand new ( and first) commercial radio station in Ireland.
Lucky enough to have presented top line late night show'The Downtown Downbeat Show'
Presented on BCR radio and ran the morning show. Started to write for kids and had few things broadcast. Am in process of trying to raise capital to form 'Kidditalk' - the little company with the right idea. We will produce home written stories by Me and also
wannabe mum and dad writers.

Throigh a fluke I was asked to perform as Santa and this led onto a frantic 3 week santa run up to Christmas. Magazines, TV etc. Exhibit my 'wares' all the time.

Throat help!

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 1:42pm 7 Comments

Hi fellow voices. John O'Hara here , in Northern Ireland.
I have been having throat trouble for a while and wondered if anyone might have some tips?


My throat , after talking a while, often becomes tight and raspy.
I feel there is something there, ( mucose) and cough to try and dislodge it to no avail.
I would be grateful if there are any tested remedies I could try.


Thank you…

Hi John!

To anyone else reading this, John is modest. He has one of the most refined and distinctive voices I've ever heard! Though I do voice work, I've used John's voice in a very difference use for his style. I used him for rock radio stations in the U.S. With sound bytes and the traditional efx, his voice is incredible to give rock radio stations unique branding. It really works well. Actually much better than my typical "rock low growl". Having his vocal style going into Zep, Boston, AC/DC, Police, Scorpions, or the tradition "rock flavor" sounds incredible!
