    Lovely to hear Florence speak for real. Voices are a sort of hobby of mine and I was delighted to spot Florence Halop’s voice in Duffy’s Tavern after having seen her several appearances in the Barney Miller DVD collection. She was quite a trouper! Thanks for that interview and I look forward to hearing all the rest.
