    Thumbs up SSE Ride Narrator

    Wow! I was totally blown away by the revelation mentioned in this week's show that not only was Vic Perrin not the original narrator of Spaceship Earth but he never was at all!

    It is amazing how much documentation is out there around this that references Vic Perrin. Just incredible to realize. I wonder if their voices sounded so similar that it was just assumed?

    I would love to learn more about who Larry Dobkins was. I see googling in my future!

    It is rather strangehow rumor becomes fact. I was listening to another, very not good podcast, and they were going on and on complaining about the new SSE and they kept talking about Vic.I had to laugh about it.

    You should send them an email with a link to Lou's show notes.

    FYI, Lawerence Dobkins was also the original narrator for The Hall of Presidents.

    I think it's funny sometimes when I'm researching something, Disney or otherwise, how many web sites reference each other or the same source blindly. I love the interconnectedness of forums and blogs and the immediacy of the posts, but the quality control is not there.

    Ok y'all I'm bumping this thread back up because I need some help. I thought based on the date I posted this that I must've been referring to the July 13th podcast but I just re-listened to it and can't find the interview. Does anyone know during which show Lou did the interview that resulted in this revelation about Larry Dobkins?

    Jenn,

    That'd be great! I have a person who claims to be an expert in all things WDI but is very adamant about the Vic Perrin thing so I want to share with them the interview.
