Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Mel Blanc's Resting Place

Today is Mel Blanc’s birthday.  The Man of a Thousand Voices would have been 105 today.

Alas, he’s been gone since 1989.  I like to imagine him wandering the World to Come, cracking the heavenly hosts up with his voice impressions and comic routines.  “Anaheim, Azusa, and Cu... camonga!”  “What’s up, Doc?” “I tawt I taw a puddy tat!”

Ivan Shreve has an excellent tribute up at Radio Spirits.  Go take a look.
