Orson, Football and Me

February 22, 2015


Nice chat with Kevin Kautzman and Dan Slater, who enjoy high-falutin talk about the world at large on their podcast Righteous Yammer. We dug deep on that time I played Orson Welles on a podcast, why people still watch pro football when it’s so dangerous and damaging, and touched lightly on life in Cuba, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and Charlie Chaplin.  Best listened to in the background with a cool beverage to hand in the foreground. Thanks fellas.


The Voice of Orson Welles

February 3, 2015

I’m a big fan of old Hollywood. Love watching people smoke, drink highballs and generally misbehave in beautiful black & white. This guy misbehaved a lot.


Karina Longworth loves old Hollywood too. She has a podcast called You Must Remember This in which she shares stories about stars, studios and the way it really was. Fascinating stuff.

Karina asked me to assay the voice of one of the biggest talents Hollywood has ever known, Orson Welles, in her most recent episode about the rather unhappy life of Welles’ (second) wife, Rita Hayworth. It was great fun and I love the way it turned out.
