"Death of a Horn Player" a short story

The Bedford Group offers this teaser of a true story profits will go to the deceased's 2 favorite organizations: The Danbury Music Center and The National Federation of the Blind Connecticut Death of a Horn Player A Short Story By A. Nonymous and B. Nonymous The People HP – The Horn Player SS – The Stepson SD – The Stepdaughter BFs – Best Friends BF1 – Best Friend #1 BF2 – Best Friend #2 BF3 – Best Friend #3 BF4 – Best Friend #4 Chapter 1 He was a charmer all his life, funny, vivacious, loyal and talented. He had played the trumpet since the 30s at every gin mill and catered affair in the area – at graduation parties, weddings, et al. He had worked in hat factories, sold booze, drank some of it, and had been a personal manager. He loved people and people loved him. He could talk to anybody a first time and make them friends. There was only one problem – he got old. BF4 used to tell him “never give up the horn, it’ll keep you alive”, but he did and began to slow down. He approached BF1, 2 and 3 about being executors of his will and powers of attorney, but they thought that would be better handled by his SS and SD. He’d told me some years back that he’d been left a substantial sum by his late wife and several decades later, his brother died and left him one quarter of a million dollars. He owned his own unencumbered house and was financially very secure. He received any necessary extra help from his good friends and truly wanted for nothing, but he made the mistake of growing old and slowing down.

We have lost a great American Icon:

"Dad passed away peacefully this morning at 10:20 am", says 82 year old Mrs. Peggy Doughty of Pinkneyville, Illinois, daughter of Major Albert Neir Brown. Until his death this morning in a Nashville, Illinois nursing home, he was not only the oldest living survivor of the Bataan Death March but was the oldest living American Veteran of WWll. He was also the only godchild of Buffalo Bill Cody. The retired dentist and US Army Major had resided at the Friendship Manor Nursing Home for the past year. Doc Brown was born on October 24, 1905 in North Platte, Nebraska. His biographers, Don Morrow and Kevin Moore, tell his life story in the book "Forsaken Heroes of the Pacific War."

ONly one space left for Don Morrow's VO Workshop

Our experiences have proven to us that people react best and do their best in an informal atmosphere. There is one space left for Don's Workshop on April 30th, 2011. It is being held in the relaxed country lakeside setting of Don's private studio and tree farm in the rolling hills of Danbury, CT. The farm is located some 60 miles north of NYC and there are 5 major airports servicing the area-two less than an hour away: Newburgh, NY and Westchester County (White Plains), N.Y., JFK and LaGuardia are an hour and a half and Newark, N.J. two hours away. Rental cars available at all. Once you have registered through the website we'll give specific directions. Also, you'll receive 40 scripts in the mail. (we'll send them overnight so you'll still have time to practice) You will choose 7 or 8 scripts from these to create your approx. 90 sec. demo. You'll also get a CD of Don's full reads and patterns to practice with ahead of time so you don't get in any bad habits. Following the recording session, the Seminar continues with a Question and Answer session accompanied by sandwiches and drinks. You will receive in the mail, the entire recorded Seminar including the Cocktail Party plus your new, AGENT ACCEPTABLE Demo.

One of my former students landed a national gig and I'm sure he will land many more. Check out his website to hear the spots. Congrats Thom I'm proud of you! This is what he had to say:

"Don Morrow gets better all the time. He works in the studio every day and his ability to bring out voice talents in others is second to none. I trained with Don years ago at his studio in Ct. and he's remained my friend, supporter and mentor ever since. I am successful in VO today because of Don's coaching. He is truly a master instructor in our business.

Other colleagues call him "The Don-Father" of voiceover, I simply call him "Father Don"."

Game Show Hall of Fame

A few really old people have asked me of late if I'm the Don Morrow listed in the Game Show Hall of Fame. I guess I'll have to admit to the old geezers that it is me. Funny....I don't feel that old!
