did want to let you know that based on your reviews of non-BBC audio/radio drama available online, I have been listening to
groups like 19 Nocturne Avenue etc. You're really creating a great resource and I'm sure many people the world over are grateful."
theme of this review posting is that something is crackling about radio drama at the moment and more and more people are recognising
it. And if other national newspapers don’t get it, there are plenty of enlightened thinkers, listeners and writers out
there who do and they will do independent reviewing. Laurence Raw is one such diamond and platinum egg .... Laurence’s
criticism is very well written. If he can sustain his current level of output, radio dramatists, actors, directors, producers
and sound designers are going to find a morale-boosting and culturally appreciative reference point for all their work." (Tim
Crook, Libertarianspirit Blog)
Raw is doing great work to promote radio drama with his thoughtful and prolific reviews" (Fred Greenhalgh, Radio Drama
take a look at Laurence Raw's website. Someone with a genuine passion for radio drama" (Julie Mayhew, dramatist & author
of Shoebox Full of Snow)
wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed reading your site recently. It’s great to see someone interested
enough in that wonderful medium of radio drama to write so many reviews" (Oliver Wake)
to prove that not everyone can be pleased all of the time ....
"You think you may have been "half-awake"?
Wholly asleep possibly. Or just cloth-eared, cloth-brained, cloth-hearted or all combined." (Martin Hoyle)
I just read Martin Hoyle's
comment on your website. Yeesh! I think you are one of the most generous reviewers out there and though critical,
you also celebrate the form in a way that shows you care about the people who make the drama and want them to continue to
do so. (Leslie McMurtry)
