6:57 PM - Son of the Ghost Host - Fred Frees (posted by
I received these links several months ago and neglected to pass them along... Paul Frees, the voice of the Ghost Host in the Haunted Mansion, has a son who also does voice work -- including some tributes to his father.
FRED FREES WORK
This first one is a bit unusual... It's Fred Frees doing monologues on top of soothing music... "You breath in... You breath out... It's not even monotonous." I am hoping it's intentionally humorous, because it cracks me up to hear such a serious voice say stuff like this:

This one is a four minute music track with ... well ... I'm gonna say zombies. I honestly don't have a description.

Now we're getting somewhere... Paul Frees did the voice of Boris from the Rocky & Bullwinkle show, and this collection of unusual ring tones has Fred Frees doing his impersonations... "You got call on phone! Could be nice Russian lady!" Also included are classic TV/radio narrator voices...

And... the one I am most likely to use... Fred Frees doing his "Ghost Host" impersination -- complete with spooky organ music ("Do not answer the phone... I will answer it for you!" parodying the "do not pull down on the safety bar, I will lower it for you" spiel in the Mansion.) And, Paul Frees was the voice of Disney's Ludwig Von Drake character, and some duke-like voices are found here too. Crazy stuff.

So take a look. Listen. Whatever. It's very unusual.
