Harry Calas -- NFL Films. "On the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field..."

That was John Facenda. Harry was later.



I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Kalas, and he was a real professional and a very nice man.
Really?

I am dying to hear about this experience!

My. Kalas spent a lot of time in the area, usually in the Spring when he was covering Phillies training games. Occasionally, I would have the opportunity to engineer voice over sessions for NFL films with Mr. Kalas. These were the end of the year highlight reel films they usually show just before the season starts. I probably did five or six of them during the late 90's - early '00 time period. He was always very professional, easy to work with, and just a nice guy to talk to.
Phillies!

Thanks man.

Wally Cox was a great one.   Too bad he's passed on.   He'd be perfect to do the Bucs 2009 season.   Maybe they can get Don Knotts.

James Earl Jones has to be on that list.
Ditto for me! another good one; this from my childhood: announce d the '84 Olympic Opening ceremony in LA: Richard Basehart (Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea).  also John Facenda of NFL films, Morgan Freeman, and Leonard Nimoy (made "In Search Of" intersting even if you were not on mind altering agents  ;) )

How about the butler from the movie Arthur?   I think his name was John Geilgud.   He had a great voice.

Lorne Green was a very good orator as well.

Lorne Green was a very good orator as well.
Except that anyone born after 1966 will only remember him as "Adama" on Battlestar Galactica and Alpo commercials......    But his voice is as good as Richard Basehart's deep voice in the '84 LA Olympiad.....   He makes my honorable mention.
