Testimonial from Pez Andrews, London-based sound engineer who Diane has collaborated with on BBC Radio projects:
"I am giving a workshop on the use of stereo to journalists at BBC World Service. Would you mind if I played them a bit of your material? Those pieces I worked on with you still stand up as some of the best-sounding in my portfolio. And that's entirely down to your recordings."
BBC Radio producer Victoria McArthur commented on Twitter recently about location recordings I did for one of her programs:
"That was a really lovely recording Diane, thank you. I didn't want to cut a single minute!"
