Dick Orkin, the radio creative and voice actor, died on Sunday. He was 84. As this podcast describes, Orkin was known for storytelling to tell a company's story, and for writing Chickenman on US radio in the 1960s. In 1995, This American Life carried the first new Chickenman episode since 1969.

I'm grateful to 89.9 Light FM and Wayne Scott Voice for their support as new silver sponsors.
