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

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
