Well, I finally managed to get a hold of a proper rip so I’ll replace my older uploads with ones with better sound ASAP.

Piccolo and the Fuel Station Manager are definitely the same person:

Old guy’s voice is goofy, hard to identify:

Fio + two miscellaneous female voices, possibly Lynn Harris based on vocal similarities:

Telephone guy and Radio guy are definitely the same person, I’m inclined to agree with one of the previous posters that this could be Barry Gjerde:

Gina, possibly Carolyn Miller based on vocal similarities:

These clips are of various minor male voices, posting them because they don’t have any ridiculous cartoon accents which will make identifying their voice actors much easier than the main cast.

EDIT: Okay update time. I’m gonna post this here so I don’t lose it later.
I found Barry Gjerde’s old personal website from the early ‘00s on Internet Archive (http://web.archive.org/web/200502091...gj/profile.htm), his resume credits him with playing four roles in the dub but doesn’t specify any in particular or if he played Porco. I’ve also found another minor character he plays which is the Watchtower Announcer at the dogfight gathering. Unless Gjerde has a bad memory (which he probably doesn’t considering the stuff he could recall in his Resident Evil interview) and/or has a much bigger vocal range than I anticipated, I have now come to the conclusion Barry Gjerde is NOT Porco.

One new voice I think I’ve identified is the Fuel Station Boy who sounds kind of similar to a “man” voice done by Rumiko Varnes in a voice demo reel on her personal website. I’ve sent her an email with a link to the character’s lines and am wanting for a response. Thoughts?
