The sound engineer set me up in a recording studio, and soon Kevin O'Connor called in from Boston. The sound was so vibrant with the headphones." said Cremin. He continued, "I've been a big fan of This Old House since they came on the air 40 years ago. They do such a great job of communicating stories. You get to feel like you know all of the entire team.:"
