The Stars of Yesterday Say Hello!

The following sound files were recorded at the 20th Annual Friends of Old-Time Radio Convention in Newark, NJ between October 18-21, 1995. They are in Sun .AU format except where otherwise noted.

Bob Hastings (137,256 bytes)
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.)

Arthur Anderson (70,617 bytes)
Best known, perhaps, as the long-running voice of the Lucky Charms Leprachan, Mr. Anderson is known to all of us as the author of "Let's Pretend; A History of Radio's Best Loved Children's Show by a Longtime Cast Member" (McFarland, 1994). He is a frequent guest at the various conventions, and one heck of a nice guy.

(Long version inRealAudioformat for download; 92,380 bytes)

Fred Foy (90,586 bytes)
Mr. Foy started in Detroit at WXYZ, and is best known to fans of Old-Time Radio as the announcer of The Lone Ranger. Probably the best-remembered voice from the Golden Days of Radio, Mr. Foy has published a book ("Fred Foy from XYZ to ABC") and recently released a CD/cassette of memories entitled "Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch..."

George Ansbro (91,050 bytes)
An announcer with over 50 years of broadcasting experience, Mr. Ansbro is a frequent guest at the FOTR convention, always ready to lend his cultured voice to announcing the recreations. He has quite a sense of humor, too...

Gale Storm (96,251 bytes)
Miss Storm won the local Gateway to Hollywood contest in Houston, and after winning the national contest in Hollywood, she received a contract with RKO Studios. The star of My Little Margie on both radio and television, she is a warm and gracious person.
