Featured in The National Barn Dance (as the "Twelve-Year-Old Boy Soprano"), Sea Hound and Coast to Coast on a Bus, Bob will be remembered by OTR listeners as Archie Andrews, a role he has recreated at the OTR Convention numerous times. (Television viewers will of course know him as Elroy Carpenter in McHale's Navy, and the Police Commissioner for nine years on General Hospital. He can be heard as the voice of Commissioner Gordon in the animated Batman series.)
