Rob Quicke Releases Debut Book on Audio Production

He is the founder of College Radio Day

Rob Quicke, founder of the global event College Radio Day, has announced the release of his debut book, “Finding Your Voice in Radio, Audio and Podcast Production,” published by Routledge. Quicke says the textbook provides a “unique identity-centered approach” to the world of radio, audio and podcast production, aimed at helping readers build confidence and create audio content that matters to them.

The book draws from Quicke’s own experiences in radio, audio and podcasting, and features practical exercises and interviews with audio creators from around the world. “It has a truly international scope, and students will find someone that they identify with when they read it,” said Quicke in a press release.

The text is centered around Quicke’s R.E.A.L. method, which stands for creating audio that is Relatable, Engaging, Authentic and Liberating. “Throughout the book, readers will learn how to apply this concept to every step of the production process, from initial planning and writing to conducting interviews, broadcasting and effectively responding to feedback,” read the release.

“By the time readers finish ‘Finding Your Voice in Radio, Audio and Podcast Production,’ they will have not only gained a working knowledge of podcast, audio and radio production but also discovered their unique means of self-expression,” said Quicke.

Paul McLane, editor in chief of Radio World, said in a review: “Rob Quicke lays out a philosophy of what it takes to create great audio content, with an emphasis on the role of personal awareness and discovery.”

“Finding Your Voice in Radio, Audio and Podcast Production” is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and all booksellers. It is also available directly from Routledge.

Rob Quicke is currently a professor and director of the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism & Mass Communications at Marshall University. He holds degrees from the University of Oxford, the University of London and Regent University.

Quicke was also general manager of WPSC(FM) in Wayne, N.J., from 2007 to 2021. Before that, he was the general manager of Chicago’s WXAV(FM) at St. Xavier University from 2002 to 2007, where he served as the director of student media.
