Of vocal enhancements

You know, I'm loving the voice overs now, with the release of Grizzleheim.

However, one particular voice caught me "off guard". The voice of "The Narrator". I didn't see that one coming. I, myself wonder who it is that provides that voice.

See, thing of it is, is I do daycare for 2 little ones, ages 2 and 4. And one of the *few* programs they can agree on is Calliou. Now, whatever does this have to do with W101? I'm so glad you asked. You see, when I first heard our new Narrator, my mind instantly connected it with another Narrator. Yes, you guessed it. The Narrator for Calliou. Here's a clip, to compare for yourself:

See, (or, rather "hear"), a similarity? Other candidates that I might have considered would be Marion Ross or perhaps Waylon Jennings, the "Balladeer" of The Dukes of Hazzard, Except he's passed on..

I duuno, just thinking aloud, is all. ;)
