One of the coolest things is hearing familiar RMT actors on other radio shows....Sometimes they are younger, sometimes older... Listening to an early Shadow I recognized a voice right away in the second one on my series...Have heard them on many other shows too.

I found it hard to recognize Virginia Gregg's voice on a show. She changed her voice and character so often, I only knew I was listening to a great actress. That would clue me in to the thought that it must be Virginia Gregg, my all time favorite actress on radio.

Ms Gregg was so prolific--we saw her on TV's "Dragnet" so much we thought she was Jack Webb's mother. Said in jest//the hardest thing for an actress is to get beyond one's vanity and play the harder edged roles.
