Archie Andrews began on the NBC Blue Network and switched to Mutual in 1944, and then continued on NBC radio from 1945 until September 5, 1953. The program’s original announcer was Kenneth Banghart, later succeeded by Bob Shepard (during the 1947-48 season, when Swift and Company sponsored the program). Archie was first played by Charles Mullen (1943-1944), Jack Grimes (1944) and Burt Boyar (1945), with Bob Hastings (1945-1953) as the title character during the NBC years.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago-area home where Ferris Bueller’s friend Cameron famously "killed" his father’s prized Ferrari finally has a new owner.
Crain’s Chicago Business reports that the modernist home in Highland Park sold Thursday for $1.06 million.
Craig Hogan is regional director at Coldwell Banker Previews. He wouldn’t say who bought the four-bedroom, steel-and-glass house built on the edge of a wooded ravine.
The house, built in 1953 by Mies van der Rohe-protege A. James Speyer, was first put on the market in 2009 listed at $2.3 million.
The sleek house was featured in John Hughes’ 1986 film "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off" as the home of Cameron Frye, played by Alan Ruck. After the Ferrari crashes through the glass into the ravine, Ferris tells Cameron: "You killed the car."
Melvin Jerome "Mel" Blanc(May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989)
Blanc, known as "The Man of 1000 Voices", was born in San Francisco, California, and later moved to Portland, Oregon where he attended Lincoln High School. He began his radio career at age 19 on the KGW program The Hoot Owls in 1927. This is where his ability to produce voices for a large number of characters was first noticed. Blanc also worked for KEX radio in Portland with his own show in 1933.
Mel Blanc later moved to Los Angeles and joined Warner-Bros- owned KFWB radio in Hollywood where he soon became the voices of various Warner-Bros cartoon characters including Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Porky Pig, just to name a few.
