Holy, crap! Does my voice suck! Towards the end of this, I began to stumble. Hopefully someone on Tumblr who knows how to rock the mic, as well as an audio station, can remix this and put some polish on this audio earsore.
I practiced for about two hours this morning trying to get my voice to be deep enough to emulate that of Don Pardo.
This man was a legend. If anyone could do baritone, it was Don Pardo! The next key down would be the late, great Don Lafontaine (a.k.a. the “In a world…” guy).
Who knows, maybe I can use this as a gateway to voice acting considering everyone says I speak too damn loud.
The hard part was finding a room that didn’t echo when I tried this impression.
Maybe I’ll record as Billy Mayes next. I did that once.
So it’s your turn, Tumblr. Tell me what I got and if I got enough to work with.
RIP Don Pardo! (1918-2014)
