The Andrew Kurjata Supercut

Posted on 7 August 2013

I am among those who have a somewhat challenging last name. It’s not the hardest in the world, but it’s not the easiest, either. Working in radio introduced me to the concept of providing a phonetic pronouncer for whomever might need it, something I employed on my wedding day (after having heard numerous justices and priests stumble at cousins’ ceremonies) and put front and center on my personal website and this companion site.

But sometimes that’s not enough. Which is why I’m pleased to present something I’ve had at the back of my mind for years, ever since people started saying my name on the radio: the Andrew Kurjata supercut.

Thanks to the various radio hosts have gamely tried- and often succeeded- at tackling my last name. For the record, even I had trouble when I started going on air. It’s a weird name to try to wrap your tongue around for some reason.
