    It’s Oct 2010 and the film is finally completed?! This is a wonderfully lively, funny program with quick witted hosts (only newly discovered by me) and I look forward to hearing more shows.. It is a surprising comment that some of the hosts don’t like listening to their own voices, in the same vain (sic). tho common enough, that actors and actresses can’t stand to watch themselves. Obviously these radio hosts, actors and actresses must have beautiful voices, looks and talents to even make it their respective businesses. By what I see and hear I would be envious of them, and if I had such would have no trouble listening or watching myself! Alas, perhaps in another life. 😉 Nevertheless, I just wanted to comment that this was very surprising to hear and Mr. Dourif should realize he’s been a very lovely, even beautiful, watchable person with incredible talent and it’s a shame he’s been so underated. Bravo for your work.
