I envied. I envied the radio voice. After a few months I realized that it was of limited value and I was being taught much theory with little practical practice.
I got used to my own recorded voice. That wasn’t too hard. I kept recording myself talking and playing it back until I was used to it. Making Vines and Youtube videos were a big help as well, but I was most of the way there using microcassette recorders and such pre-social network
But I usually make funny voices when I record myself, so it’s not entirely my real voice, which is a little flatter.
The US National Anthem has ROCKETS and BOMBS in it lyrics. And it was written after the War of 1812.
Rockets and bombs have been a part of US history from just about the start.
