"As a senior account executive at a Vermont radio group, I had the pleasure of working with Mel. Being a former NYC copywriter, the final product was very important to me. Mel was not only a wonderful voice talent but also had a very intuitive creative sense which always enhanced every spot we produced together. He's a real pro.
"Mel has one of the most distinctive and effective voices in the industry. The two years he served as my creative director were filled with award winning commercials, top notch production, and satisfied clients. Anyone can read a script, but only one person can give it the Mel Allen touch. Feel free to contact me for further information or a more detailed referral.
