Thanks to our good friends at 1310 The Ticket in Dallas for tweeting the link to the video below, which features a homeless man from Columbus, Ohio…and his ridiculously awesome voice.
As their tweet says, you have to hear this guy’s voice to believe it. I think “golden radio voice” is the perfect way to describe it.
Update January 8th: Wow. The Columbus Dispatch has removed the original video from YouTube due to a “copyright violation”. As if we needed another example of the myopia and idiocy of the newspaper industry. Anyway, there are plenty of other videos showing Ted Williams and his golden voice (hello Columbus Dispatch!!!). I’ve posted a new one below, and left in the Columbus Dispatch version that is now removed so everyone can point and laugh.
Here is the original video:
Update: Great news! In the last 24 hours, not only has Ted gone viral, but he now has a plethora of job offers. Click here to see list. We wish him the best of luck at his 2nd chance to make a career out of what he was born to do.
I need to find a way to get this guy on the podcast. In fact, if anyone sees this post and knows how to contact him, I’ll throw him some cash to record and intro and outro for the MSF podcast. Not quite sure how to contact him from Dallas though.
Oh, and yes, his name is Ted Williams. I don’t know why, but that just seems like the perfect detail to make the video even more incredible.
