Thanks to Dave M's quick eye and sleuthing skills, he found a neat entry in another blog singing Charlie's praises:
At one time or another, you have probably used Charlie Scarbrough as voice talent. Charlie was a pioneer in doing freelance voice work, starting his career over 30 years ago. In that time, his status has gone from local legend to national legend. In fact, Charlie is one of the major reasons Little Rock has become a national media production center!
Now, Charlie (pictured above, circa 1934 a.d.) has gotten what he deserves. (1934??? HAS to be a mistake...this was in the latter '60s at KAAY. bs)
Our local chapter of the AAF just awarded Charlie the Lifetime Achievement Award, and this voice actor really earned it. Charlie was an inspiration to us from the beginning. He taught Brent what it meant to run a recording studio, and has paved the way for many brave voice actors to forge ahead and go full-time.
Even though Charlie’s a bit of a luddite and doesn’t own a computer, (so he can’t possibly read this) we’d like to say congratulations Charlie, and thanks for paving the way. You’re not only a great voice actor, you also light up the place every time you walk in for a session.
Here’s a short montage of Charlie’s takes and outtakes put together by our own John Crowley.

And, you'll notice that Charlie "King" is wearing the jacket with the KAAY patch on it, as we had posted awhile back!
Thank you, Dave M.! David B. Treadway made the comment awhile back that Charlie was the least mentioned in the history of KAAY...well, we're giving him some well- earned attention now. More later.
Keep it comin, folks!
