This is a long clip, but fantastic for anyone who's ever done or loved voice over. Can't believe the Rocky & Bullwinkle narrator was William Conrad! Apparently he was told to speed up and when he did his voice got high and shrill. He complained he sounded hysterical, and was told that was exactly what the director was going for!

Here's something I hope you'll really like!...Outtakes from a recording session for the 1963 "Rocky & Bullwinkle" episode "The Weather Lady". You'll hear Wil...

TRAILER: A Man Named Marlowe—An Original Audio Drama

https://soundcloud.com/…/trailer-a-man-named-marlowean-orig…

Coming on May 15, 2018: an original audio dram...a called: A Man Named Marlowe.

Author Raymond Chandler set The Big Sleep, the first of his novels involving famous private detective Philip Marlowe in then present-day 1936. But, who was Marlowe before The Big Sleep?

We'll meet Marlowe in 1935, one year before Marlowe was hired by General Sternwood. It's a mystery so hair-raising that it involves a double-crossing friend, a beautiful, cunning woman, a gangster and his hoods, a wealthy getaway in the San Bernardino Mountains, and two famous bank robbers thought to be long-dead. You'll hear Marlowe younger and less case-hardened than ever before and get insight into what made Marlowe, Marlowe.

In this track you'll hear a sneak peak of the first portion of the story and introduce one of the key players. Download and subscribe in the same feed as Breaking Walls or at thewallbreakers.com

So excited that Josh, the voice of Twelve Chimes, is gettin' serious about marketing his exceptional voice! Fantastic demo that'll get the gigs rollin' in!!!! 🎙️

After having fun with podcasting for the last two years (thanks Brett and Aimee!) and being involved in voice acting through the SAG/AFTRA Radio Plays, I've dec...ided to give professional voiceover a try.

Thanks to advice from Robert Cait, I've been been taking coaching through Marla Kirban Voiceover over the last few months, and several weeks ago I traveled to New York to record my demo reel. Please give it a listen and let me know what you think! It's also on my website at http://joshhorowitz.com.

In honor of St. Patricks' Day, a retrograde throwback with a look at some of the on-air St. Paddy’s... Day shenanigans throughout the Golden Age of Radio.

Did you know that the famous Jack Benny and Fred Allen comedic feud ended (for the first time) on March 14, 1937 at the Pierre Hotel in New York City? Three days later on St. Patrick's Day 1937, Fred Allen's radio program made numerous mentions about the feud.

Did you know that Irish-American tenor Dennis Day’s returned to the Jack Benny Program from the Navy on St. Patricks' Day 1946 with a beautiful rendition of Danny Boy?

Did you know why Gracie Allen loved the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City? She explained to husband George Burns and the rest of the world on their St. Patricks' Day program in 1941.

Did you know a popular show named Beat the Band had a St. Patricks' Day themed episode in 1940?

Did you know what Bill Stern the sports caster, Notre Dame, Chauncey Olcott, and My Wild Irish Rose have in common?

Did you know that Fred Allen unfortunately died of a heart attack on St. Patricks' Day 1956, 19 years and 3 days after his Pierre Hotel performance with Jack Benny?

If you said "no" to any of these, fear not! With a little luck of the Irish you can tune into the above link and hear for yourself!
