I am very pleased with the advert I have running on The Voice! I worked with Tim to agree a concept that worked for my company, then he wrote the script, sourced the voice-over artists and took it through to final production. I've had lots of great comments, it sounds really professional and the overall price was very reasonable. Highly recommend using The Voice for local advertising

Tim has written and produced some excellent commercials. Particularly for the fancy dress company ‘A Dressing Up Box’ - so many ads fall at the first hurdle - they fail to give you any reason, at the beginning of the ad, to listen to the rest of it - they were gripping in an amusing way from the off - as I say made me smile!

Tim’s talent for commercial radio script writing is second to none. "The proof is in the pudding", when most of a town are singing a jingle that he wrote. He opens your mind to what can be achieved and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Tim

The Voice have worked so hard to keep really local radio broadcasting in North Devon. Over 20 people volunteer to keep The Voice on the airwaves, not just during 30 day restricted FM licenses but online fulltime as well. The new DAB license is really welcome news and a great result for everyone who has worked so hard over the last 18 months. Lets make sure The Voice FM is supported by local people and businesses alike!
