No Arturo,
In my opinion, the producer should haved walked her through all of the pronunciations.  Can she cuts the tracks again and make it right?  Just from a standpoint of pure professionalism, her pride should make her want to do it right.  A male voice should translate another male's voice.
Once you put that on the air, you can't take it back.  Those overlooked fine points of your final product will forever haunt you.  Do you want to settle for less than your vision?  That's what you'll end up with.

Subject: [JPL] A question about a jazz radio documentary

This week's JPL sponsor: Outside Shore Music    Wendy Fopeano ''Raining On The Roses''

''Wendy Fopeano sings with depth, creativity, and soul.'' Fred Hersch

Considered an exceptional singer by her peers, Wendy has surrounded herself with some of Denver's world-class talent for her second release on Outside Shore. The music spans a wide range of moods, rhythms, and tempos, from the exquisite beauty of Caminhos Cruzados to the wild ride of Caravan to the upbeat funkiness of David Murrays' ''Morning Song.''  Raised in Kansas City, Wendy started out playing bass, piano, trumpet and guitar before choosing voice as her main instrument. She currently hosts a show on jazz89 KUVO every weekday from 1 to 4 pm.


This is a question about a proposed project of mine. I want to expose
mainstream swing and bop jazz to a Spanish dominant Latino audience. I want
to reach a larger audience by using a celebrity, so I hired a well known
Spanish language dominant actress who knows nothing about jazz to narrate,
she mispronounces all of the artists' name and jazz terms and then I used a
female voice over to translate male musician's comments from English to

How would you all feel about this project?  Should I release this?
