"Fellow DJIR's, my name is Bill, and I'm a voiceaholic.
"Hi, Bill, welcome," comes the droning of professional mouths about the room.
What a great idea. I'm ashamed to say I was never fired from radio because I discovered the hottest format around:…"

Coming from you, that's a very high compliment indeed. It was such a high and such an honor to have been allowed to speak that night. It's been a strange two weeks, no? He touched us so deeply.
Love you,

"Joanie,
Ohhh, whatta night at the WGA. Wow. The perfect (and deeply sad) blend of exquisite humor ("Don had pet names for his agent; one of them was Greedbag") music to make us cry, stories, Tim's excellent videos, that empty microphone with the…"

"Nick,
See you at the Wintner bash. But to get in, you've got to do the rap-singing video. Hey, it might be a whole new career move. I know it is for me...golden age rap!

"Joey,
Wally Burr is the best. He directed all the G.I. Joes I appeared in as Flint. He really knows his stuff and has directed the biggest in the biz. Very specific, no-nonsense -- the real McCoy. Please say hello to him from Flint.

"Ladie,
I LOVE your first demo - so much life, humor, character & energy. Obviously you do this for a living, and you do it with such class & sass.

On your first DEMO I wouldn't mix Spanish in with the English on the same demo track. Keep them as…"

"Joey,
Ahhh, the joys of smoke & mirrors. That's my talk-back mic that a girlfriend in 1980 gave to me after using it as a ballpeen hammer. I use a Sennheiser 416 in the booth.

  • Bill Ratner, you are so dang sweet to even send me a message.  I haven't been on VU in like 2 1/2 years so no worries about delayed messages.

    Here's some exciting news ... I was chosen to be the event announce at the 2013 Clio Awards which were held in NYC this last Wednesday, May 15.  Came out of the clear blue sky ... truly an honor.  Just had to share.

     You are still #1 in my book.  So talented on every level.

    You inspire me.

  • You're awesome!

  • Hi Bill, had a blast (once I got over being nervous) at the Marice Tobias workshop last weekend. She really is amazing and brought me along in development more than I thought was possible in two days. Maybe I'll see you at one of her workshops once of these days. I really love this biz and the people in it.

  • Hi, Bill.

    I used to work as the Webmaster for KFMB TV/AM/FM in San Diego. I did not have the pleasure of meeting or speaking with you while you were doing the Imaging for the TV News side ("News8") but I'm glad I finally get to say "hello". Your breadth of work in is amazing and one of the catalysts for me to become a Voice Actor.

    Did you work with Roy Robertson at KFMB? He was the Client Services and Production Manager for the radio side. Roy was kind enough to let me do my very first Voice Over read that made it past an audition tape!

    I've moved back to my hometown (a successful graduate of growing up in 'The Valley', thank you!) and devoting non Banker's Hours to a career in Commercial, Animation, and Character/Video Game Voice Over.

  • When I grow up... I wanna be just like you!!!
  • Loved Flint when I was a kid, Bill. HUGE fan! Enjoyed the cameo on Family Guy too!
  • Flint!
    I said Hi to Wally for ya. He seemed tickled about it and sad hi to you as well.

    I hope all is well my man!
