Testimonials

Hi Gene,
Your radio voice is so reminiscent of the time I grew up in that I can't understand why you aren't on a local radio station; but then, it's a whole new generation. I hate rap and hip hop. My folks may have said that about Rock n Roll when I couldn't hear it. Your Rush Limblob voice sounds like an SS officer during WW2, which I consider is someone Rush would have idolized, it's so close.

The Gene Weed, a Touch of Class
Posted on July 18, 2014 by Don Larson

My friend and mentor, Gene Weed, created a voice-over ad for our Newbound Network product. Both my software partner, Marc Raiser and I mentioned this contribution on our respective Facebook Walls today.

NEWBOUND NETORK, Inc.

Gene that was really good. Natural and clean! Anything I can do to help out let me know

Jeff Laurence Gill, Autum Hill Studios

WOW Gene, thank you!

I may just be overtired, but that actually made me a little weepy! Our graphic designer tells me he wants to improve on the graphics, but here is a video I made earlier that I added your voice to:

Newbound Network Inc.

Marvelous! Thank you, Gene. Continued success in your work, which always sounds great. I'll always remember and appreciate the photo and story you shared with me about your dad. Good to hear from you.

Dr. Stanley Coutant, Professor Emeritus, Stanford Unuversity

Hi Gene and Marc,

Amazing! I think this ad could win an award for content and concise delivery.

Thank you both!

Warmest regards,

Don Larson, President, NBN Inc.
