A Sing-A-Long

By Laura Doering, Editor of BIRD TALK and
Join in on Laura's fun and experiences of bird ownership, and share in her adventures as the editor of BIRD TALK, the world’s most widely read pet bird magazine, in Wayward Feathers.

In a previous post, I alluded to helping write a jingle and singing it on a demo tape for a top-secret project coming this summer on Well, yesterday a few other editors and I laid down the official track. We borrowed the Cat Fancy editor (who’s a veteran karaoke singer) and the equally talented web editor for Pet Product News, along with the Small Animal Channel editor and the bird team.

It felt a bit like “American Idol,” with our audio/visual coordinator gently suggesting that those of us who were a bit more vocally challenged move further away from the recording microphone.  It took a few takes, but we finally “nailed it.”

Mind you, we are a publishing company, not a record company, so we don’t have sound-proofed rooms for such recordings. That meant that the department across the hall, pre-press that is, could hear every take. That would explain the funny looks and snickering we saw as we exited the room. It’s a catchy tune, though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they were humming it throughout the day like I have been.
