Robot House Creative has once again brought the goods (or maybe I should say seasonal goodies) with this new radio spot for the holiday season. It’s got everything: CVS receipts, Michael Bublé, avocado toast, life coaches. I have to say, this one goes right up there with “Bucket of Gravy” as one of my favorite[…]
We knew this spot was going to be special the moment we opened up the mic with our voice talent Dave. There’s something kaleidoscopic about his voice that covers all the feels for this spot about home and place. In four short lines of copy, Dave sounds wise, folksy, aspirational, authoritative and caring. Not an[…]
Good stuff from Doug – this is the Monsters Calling Home video they shot, recorded, and performed inside their Hondas. Wowzers. I feel sorry for their drummer. This reminds me of the time we booked a revision with a voice talent who was on vacation. He had to drive to a hot spot he found[…]

This past month we did the sound design for this bumpin’ ASU promo that ran on ESPN2 during the ASU / ULM game on October 19. Scott did some really rad sfx work to create the ratcheting sounds that mark the Transformers-ish action early in this video. Without giving too much away I’ll just mention[…]
At long last we’ve launched Pedal Talk, our new podcast devoted to talking about magic and mischievous guitar effects pedals. In this installment we focus on a quartet of stomp boxes currently residing in the esteemed pedal-board of Chris Michaels. Check it, in this episode we demo: • MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay • Electro-Harmonix[…]

The stories and tributes are piling up around the web today about the passing of a true voice-over legend, Don LaFontaine. Undoubtedly LaFontaine is best know for his movie trailer work, especially for his deep and dramatic delivery of that oh-so-ubiquitous blockbuster phrase: “IN A WORLD. . .” That being the case, most of the[…]
The day before yesterday, we thought we were being soooo clever. We were working on a spot that required GPS SFX so we hopped in the car with Scott’s Magellan GPS unit, programmed directions to Lucky Dog Audio, took a spin around downtown Little Rock, and recorded the Magellan beeping and cooing at us as[…]
Lessons in Audio Del Close and John Brent lay down some nice geek vs beatnik dialogue circa 1962. The twilight world of the American hipster is an important American subculture with a language all it’s own. – Del Close Like, if you took the lid of your Maytag and there was a giant octopus trashing[…]
And now, a moment to salute friends of Lucky Dog, the Boondogs. This footage is from their appearance last year on AETN Presents, visually tweaked by Boondog percussionist Dylan Field. Not only do we love the songwriting team of Grotto and Weinheimer, but our partnership with Weinheimer’s Sellout Music lets us do great custom music[…]
