Before Pat Fraley….before Don LaFontaine, or Dick Orkin, or (fill in the blank with the name of your favorite iconic voice star)…there was Mel Blanc.Mel_blanc
 

As a kid, I worshipped this man. Like Bob Bergen, I tried my best to do all the voices he did. (Bob kept his focus…I got waylaid into news, darnit!).  I actually attended a seminar with Mel Blanc once (1979). ‘Wish they had digital videocams back then.

Now, BBC Radio has produced a 30-minute documentary on Mel Blanc in celebration of his 100th Birthday on May 30th. You can listen to the entire broadcast HERE: That’s All Folks! The Mel Blanc Story.
