Mike, I hope you enjoyed your birthday half as much as I enjoyed checking out your YouTube material on your VU page and all the rest of material posted on your official website! My personal favorites were your imitations of the Simpsons, Governor Schwarzenegger, Rush Limbaugh, and your “Voices on the Phone” –They were pure genius! Keep up the great work!
As for my acting with Chris…it was a long time ago (1978). He starred as Richard II in Shakespeare’s play of the same title, and I played Sir Stephen Scroop and Lord Berkeley. We shared a great scene together in which he almost hit me for being the bearer of bad news. He was and is a brilliant actor. One day, when he noticed me visibly worried backstage after having forgotten a line, he kindly asked me what was wrong. After I told him, he reassured me that he hadn’t noticed my adlib and didn’t think anyone else did. Our director Dr. Richard Burgwin, however, was quick to inform me that he noticed the adlib. So much for Chris’ reassurance!
Thanks for writing back, and taking an interest in old history –it was fun recalling those days. Working with great actors like Chris and the late Nick Pennell was an unforgettable, educational experience. I hope to someday have the opportunity of working with you. Your vocal talent is truly amazing!
Hey Mike....its been a long time! I just watched your Simpsons anniversary video where you did Homer in front of the writers & I literally laughed my tail off--- Great stuff!! Miss having you on our station. As Homer would say "Stupid corporate budgets!!!.... Hope you are well! BRIAN, KSTZ, Des Moines.
I trust the Voiceover Universe experience has been good for you!
Also, I hope you'll check out and join a group that we recently started called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
IF there were an academy award for puppy imitations...you surely would have the statue...I miss the good Ole radio days...it's strange to see rules get tighter and the years go on...Remember when Flounder tells you the story about a Pony and a Mexican woman with a cigar,.....it's not true.
