|Here's what they're sayin'...
"In the hectic world of game development, we worry about every little detail. The one thing I never have to worry about is working with Al! With Al Murdoch, I know we're getting an absolute professional with immense talent; someone who cares about our product as much as we do! Al's a true pleasure to work with - our standards are some of the highest in the industry and not using "Murdoch" is out of the question!"
Ed Tam/Assistant Producer - NBA LIVE/E.A. Sports Canada
“Hiring Al was one of the best things I ever did when I was PD at Y-108. His sound helped take Y108 to a whole new level, which comes in handy when the station is up against stations in the biggest market in Canada (Toronto). He's incredible to work with and his turnaround time is amazing!”
"When a client says they want a 'guy with a big voice that sounds like his scrotum is dragging on the ground BUT also sounds like a fun guy to have a beer with', Al's the first name that comes to mind. Bonus points for him always being gracious when clients need re-do's. He's my second favorite Canadian behind Ron on "How I Met Your Mother", because Al doesn't look good in a low-cut top"
Jeff Murphy/Consultant at DeMers Programming/Austin, TX
“I have had the pleasure of working with Al on a number of projects over the years, along side him in different capacities in radio and television. Al consistently strives for excellence in his work. If he doesn't nail the read on the first take, he take's direction well and improvises with his own brand of creativity until he is happy with the result. And he isn't happy unless he meets or exceeds your expectations. He's punctual, creative, fun to work with and above all a complete pro. Al's distinct vocal quality and diverse range puts him in a different category above most others. I would not hesitate to use Al again, or recommend him to others looking for that perfect voice.”

"Al's work is always top quality…we traditionally have some of our shortest studio sessions with him because he gets it done very quickly, and very well…every time!”
