FREAKS CAME OUT TO WRITE The Definitive History of the Village Voice, the Radical Paper That Changed American Culture

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Johnny Heller, Jo Anna Perrin

History • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Johnny Heller and Jo Anna Perrin successfully navigate the challenge of narrating an extensive oral history, creating a fascinating journey through the evolution and demise of THE VILLAGE VOICE. Even if listeners have never read the weekly news and culture publication from Greenwich Village, they've definitely felt its influence. Contributing writers embraced the arts and pop culture in ways legacy brands would not. Many of the contributors quoted will be known to fans, but Heller and Perrin avoid imitating anyone. Both take the approach that less is more, performing the many voices consistently with subtle touches and embracing natural rhythms of speech and dialogue. The result is a moving history of powerful writing that captures the soul of the times. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
