Meet Tom Voelk
Hi folks. I’m taking a little “me” time since I’ve been churning these reviews out for over eight years without much of a break. Yes, it’s loads of fun. Yes, it’s loads of work.
We’re installing a new edit system at KING TV, the Seattle NBC affiliate where I work. Since there’s going to be some mandatory down time (and a fairly steep learning curve) I figure it’s a good time to get to the five years of chores that have been stacking up around the homestead.
I could have just said “see you in a couple weeks”, but no, I’m trying to keep you mildly entertained (emphasis on mildly this week) so you will continue spread the word about these videos. My good friend and co-worker Jim Dever did a story about me a few months ago to kind of show how I put these reviews together and to offer up a little insight into who I am and what’s important to me. I wanted no part of it, my boss kind of insisted.
Jim did not ask me about my love of breakfast cereal, my collection of Chevron toy cars (I own nearly every one made), or that if I ever get the chance, I’m out on a long run.
For me it’s always been about the car and the information, I’m just sort of there to move it all along. But this story has been laying around and it gives me a week to sort things out. So I self-consciously post it and head off to work on the sprinkler system in my wife’s garden.
Know that there are plenty of great episodes coming and there will be some changes coming soon. I have a number of commitments coming up and last time I checked there are only 24 hours in a day. Bear with me.
Thanks again for spreading the word about Driven Car Reviews! TV
