    Holy ****. That sounded like it was dubbed or something. Amazing story, hope he does get a second chance if he is really 2 years clean.

    You can usually tell when those guys are "clean" or not. He seemed to be. Hope he gets a shot.

    Re: Homeless Man with the Golden Radio Voice

    It takes a lot of humility as well to beg on the street. I bet this guy is back on his feet in no time and I wish him the best. Seems to be very articulate and well educated. There's a lesson for all of the dropouts out there...granted this guy will get picked up due to his voice talents but without his education he'd have to settle for BK or a Walmart greeter. They can take your money but they can't take your education.

    Re: Homeless Man with the Golden Radio Voice

    Looks like he's getting an interview:

    'Golden-voiced' homeless man lands radio spot - U.S. news - Wonderful World - msnbc.com

    A morning radio show in Columbus called " Dave and Jimmy" plans to interview "the homeless man with the awesome voice" in studio on Wednesday, CBS reported.

    "We're going to find some way to help this guy!" Dave and Jimmy said on their Facebook page.

    He sort of resembles a caricature of Obama to me, like if duffy were to draw him

    I hope he gets a shot at turning it around. His voice is pretty amazing, and he seems like a bright guy.

    Didn't one of the big Hollywood Movie voiceover guys die this last year? This guy could do that job in a heartbeat!
