My morning commute can take me anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours based on the traffic, accidents, road construction and rubberneckers. You get used to such things and find ways to pass the time. Just recently, I was listening to an old radio episode of Gunsmoke from the 1950’s and recognized the voice of the doctor. I just couldn’t place it.
As traffic crept along, I finally realized that the voice I recognized was that of Howard McNear. McNear played the role of “Doc Adams” in CBS Radio’s Gunsmoke from 1952 to 1961. I didn’t know him by his real name, I knew him as “Floyd the Barber” on The Andy Griffith Show.
Some folks’ voices have that effect on you – you remember them.
A couple of days later, my son had given me a demo copy of his latest album. He’s not famous yet, but he will go off to college in the fall to Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee to learn about the music business.
