I did this for a client...he wanted something like a "Hallmark Moment". Just thought I'd share this with you and hope you enjoy it.

Thanks Tony....glad you like the STUFF...it really brought a tear to my eye when I was reading it..Had to do a bunch of takes on this one

Wow, Bry. Now, I gotta qualify this by saying that I cry in particularly moving commercials ;) (You know that one with the father who gives his daughter a cell phone for Christmas while they're in a car? I can't remember if it's a Rogers of a Bell commercial... but it makes me weepy every time.) - But I needed several kleenexes while I was listening to this. I think you did a fantastic job. And it's certainly a very worthy life lesson. Thanks very much for sharing it with us. :afro:

Thank you Bryan for this touching story and your unique read. I guess warm tears for another is what make us human.

I have to apologize for taking so long to sit and listen to this. I began listening to it right after you posted it but had to scoot. Then I began to read all the remarks and realized I really needed to give this a listen.
Just beautiful. Hard to believe that this voice I'm hearing is the same one that said "You have a rodent infestation"! (BTW, watched that again the other night).
If you don't mind, I'd like to share this via e-mail with the staff at my church, the same ones who sent me the Babe Ruth Baseball story script.
This is so sweet. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Bry .... great read!! I loved how you started with the harsh tone of a frustrated Cabbie ... and as the story progressed, you never lost the essence of the driver, but it softened and really worked with the story.
Excellent job. Really moving.

Scott ...I would feel honoured to have that shared...with anybody!! I loved the read you did on your story..it was extemely moving. As a matter of fact I thought of the way you read it as I was doing this one and really think you did a much better job buddy!!
This piece was a real departure for the stuff that I normally do and was a real challenge. Thank you all for your kind words on this...the tear duct's had a real work out yesterday for sure. I'm thankful I could do this in my own studio and not a public studio with producers and clients hanging around.

You know...we've become good friends since meeting here, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the fact we talk all the time, and get to share this journey we are on...both in life and career...We've shared stories about work, family, you're broken neck, those oh so flattering pictures of you in the 70's, the fact you're Canadian LOL...but I never in my wildest dreams thought you...a big, bald, ugly man (said with a smile) would ever bring me to tears...thanks, I needed that...
Your friend always,

Thanks for all the wonderful comments about this story. Also thanks for all the emails as well. I've been asked alot if I'd mind if they passed this on to others....IT'S FINE WITH ME !! Just don't make it into a spam message "if you don't forward this on to 2 million of your friends with in the next 10 sec...bla, bla bla"

thanks, Bry ... thank you very very much

Bry, all I can say is WOW.
09-18-2008, 09:28 AM
Thanks for sharing that. You did a terrific read as usual, and what a story.

Stand up and take a bow, Bry.
The writer did a very nice job, and - like the true pro you are - you brought life to the words.
I especially admire the way you eschewed the easier interpretation of just being schmaltzy throughout; electing a more true-to-life read.
