Hi Gang,

Excessive noise is becoming an overwhelming problem in today's society. With more and more people living in condo's, townhomes, and co-ops, soundproofing is becoming a major factor when buying, selling or remodeling.
The folks buying and renovating old houses, or even newly constructed homes, are of the "Baby Boomer" generation, and not people in their 70's and 80's. They are those of us who grew up with The Beatles, The Stones, and Woodstock and chances are that instead of an old umbrella leaning up in the corner of the room, there's a Fender Stratocaster there.
Even with an old Victorian or Cape Cod renovation there are people seriously concerned about soundproofing a home theater, or a music studio for band practice or recording. These are priorities for these individuals, and they want to find the most effective and economical ways to soundproof, and the skills needed to do it themselves.
I feel that an episode of "Home Again" dedicated to soundproofing and sound conditioning would certainly boost ratings, simply because there is a desperate need for this information in this noisy and ever changing world.
If you feel the same way I do, write to Bob V. and request a show specifically dedicated to soundproofing in a new home construction, renovation, or restoration. I know I'll be writing to Ole Bob V. real soon.
If you have questions about soundproofing go to www.soundproofing.org and post on the Q & A forum. Your question WILL be answered.
Thanks for reading this and for writing to Bob V.

Soundproof Bob!

i think they did do a good partion of a recent show on soundproofing a condo ceiling. while soundproofing is interesting, i rarely see an entire show dedicated to just one topic, they seem to do 2-3 subjects per episode. just my 2 cents.

this is the show i mentioned: http://www.bobvila.com/BVTV/HomeAgain/Episode-1410.html
