Re: R.I.P. Don Pardo

This sucks. His voice was instantly recognizable no matter what he did. Rest in peace, Don, and don't forget to tell them what they won when you get up there.

I've read this entire thread (in my head) in his voice.

Re: R.I.P. Don Pardo

The common factor that connected all of Saturday Night Live from 2014 clear back to 1975, when he'd already been an announcer for 30 years! Amazing. To be able to do a job you enjoy into your 90s, that's pretty good. But I will really miss that voice.
