2 Responses to Dryden, Robert


I'm surprised no one has commented on Robert Dryden. He had a distinctive voice, which is harder to vary into different characters without still sounding like himself. Yet he was the best, hands down, at doing just that. I guess those of us who have listened to these hundreds of episodes can spot his voice most any time, but I still marvel at how many characters he could play in the same episode and you still felt you were listening to different people.

I have loved this show for so many years, and Robert's voice definitely was a huge part of that.. A great ability to taylor his voice to whatever part it was he was playing.. And for a blind fan, as I am, this is quite awesome.
