Alan Reed

Recorded February 17th, 1975 - 48 min

Actor who owned a familiar, yet versatile voice that brightened many a comedy and dramatic show on radio. He was Pasquale on Life with Luigi; Falstaff Openshaw on The Fred Allen Show; he was the original Daddy to Fanny Brice’s Baby Snooks.  He was born August 20, 1907 and was 67 when we met in his large, rambling ranch-type home, tucked away in a beautiful residential corner of Hollywood, California.  He died June 14, 1977 at age 69.

Fred Allen Show - 2/6/44 - Guest is James Melton
