New Year Tributes 2018

New Year Tributes 2018

This week's show is dedicated to my dear childhood friend from Edmonton, Alan Bleviss, who passed away last month at the age of 76. He was described as one of the "top names" in the business. His voice over career spanned nearly four decades. Alan did voice over work for the coming attraction trailers for hundreds of Hollywood movies, especially those made by Miramax His corporate clients include American Express, AT&T, Canada Dry and Kodak. Alan has won six Clio awards. Alan served on the Board of Directors of the National Theatre School of Canada, and has funded scholarships and a student theatre facility at the University of Alberta. He was the inspiration for a sandwich called "The Edmonton" at Shopsins, a diner in Manhattan. It is a tuna and avocado sandwich on garlic bread. I've uncovered some early commercials he did. We also paid tribute to George Burns with an early interview on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show..
