I remember Hank Simms doing the announcing for many years. He was great.

I also remember Norman Rose doing the show the year Titanic won all those Oscars.

Randy is perhaps best known for the Hooked on Phonics radio spots.

Considering she hasn't done those spots since the 90s, she may eventually become better known as the Oscar announcer.

Wasn't that Donald Sutherland she was paired with?

Thanks for the memory jog; it was Donald Sutherland.

And you notice how much Kiefer Sutherland is starting to resemble ol' Don more and more as the years wear on?

That's one of the reasons why I was sorry to see the last of the Quinn Martin shows go off the air. That's a voice I miss. What's he done since Police Squad! was cancelled? Certainly those pipes aren't just wasting away somewhere.
