    From Robert Matzen To Dave Simmons (Re: Job #70828) Dave,
    Thank you for sending the audio file. The delivery sounds great. Love your tube mic. One minor change needed. The pronunciation of Medina, Ohio. It is pronounced meh-dine'-ah not meh-deen'-ah. Can you record an update and send it to me by Wednesday? We are starting our edit then.

    Thanks

    From Joel Mains To Dave Simmons (Re: Job #33030) Dave Simmons was fantastic to work with, and his versatility really came in handy! He was perfectly able to give me a number of different voices, inflections, and reads -- and had an ability to not only implement direction, but offer up his own strong creative suggestions. He has a friendly, upbeat manner, and on top of that, has a great voice! This is a winning combo.
