#JIAM Day 5

Grover Gardner, master audiobook narrator & Studio Director for Blackstone Audio is celebrating June is Audiobook Month  (#JIAM in the Twitterverse) by posting each day on Grover’s Audiobook Blog highlighting his 30 years in the audiobook business. Gardner’s blog is always a must read for audiobook aficionados, but this series of posts is extra special. In just the past five days, he’s taken readers on a complete tour of the history of  audiobooks, from the early days of  founding producers to the changes in recording technology. But don’t just limit yourself to the most recent posts – settle in for a good long read of all of Gardner’s posts, from 2009 to today. Thanks, Grover, for giving those of us on the other end of the headphones such a personal glimpse into your extraordinary career!
