I wonder how many listeners are a bit confused when they hear a "new" guy on another station that sure sounds exactly like the guy they used to listen to over on another station. I imagine that this might happen if a listener moved to a new city and found that particular station. It could make a listener go a little crazy wondering how the voices were just the same. Do on air people ever change their names when staying in the same market?
Me - I have driven through cities and listened to many voices that I knew from our Dallas radio personalities.
I would love to hear Ken Dow and Granny Emma again on KLIF.
I still listen to Allen Peck but loved to listen to Peck and Penny on KBOX while I got ready for work back in about 1975.
Then Don Harris on WBAP - he was the funniest man with the dryest sense of humor. He and my Daddy sent each other pictures of outhouses. ?? I don't know - I think they were trying to find the funniest.

I can tell a difference.
Mel Blanc and Paul Frees were the best of the best.
