Happy birthday to a very entertaining man of the ol' radio days.

If Don were still alive today, then he'd be age 107 (and he's actually one day younger than Mel Blanc). He did great as the voice of Shadow, and I also liked seeing a couple of live action roles (his minor role in "Coming to America [1988]," John Hathaway in "The Feminine Touch," and Arthur Hathaway in "Cocoon"). If only he had more voice acting roles in his career, at least he got to voice Shadow.

@Jacob M. Keene If it's any consolation, he did do a lot of radio work.

@Jacob M. Keene You're welcome. He was frequently used as a romantic lead on the "First Nighter Show" from 1930 until 1936. He was frequently paired with June Meredith and Betty Lou Gerson. After Ameche, the romantic male leads were Les Tremayne and Olan Soule.

@Jacob M. Keene Yeah, and you should take a look at this picture of Ameche having fun with Jimmy Durante on a recording session at the old NBC studios:

You just gotta love Ameche's hilarious expression. XD
