The Alabama Conference of Theatre and Speech said:
The ingenious Henry Howard...was back by popular demand, corralling students and teachers for an impromptu radio show. In mere minutes he demonstrated the endless possibilities of his sound effects created from everyday items, rehearsed his actors and technicians, and recorded a hilarious spoof on the old cliff hanger radio serials. It was clearly a lesson in hands-on-learning! Participants came away with a new perspective on Radio Theatre as a venue for high school and college drama programs working under budget restrictions.

In 2007 Atlanta's Theatrical Outfit contracted for sound effects assistance for their production of It's A Wonderful Life. The effects had to be gathered or constructed and the actors had to be trained in how to perform each effect. That production was a finalist in the Suzie Bass Awards competition for sound design.
