Sometimes working with people out of your market or not face-to-face can be challenging, but Andrew made

my job very easy. He not only has a wonderful range and tone, but he is extremely professional and very pleasant

to work with. He met our strict time lines with ease and helped us exceed our deadline by recording the spot

AUDITION

Bunion Derby
The 1928 Footrace Across America

On March 4, 1928, 199 men lined up in Los Angeles, California, to participate in a 3,400-mile transcontinental footrace to New York City.

 

The Bunion Derby, as the press dubbed the event, was the brainchild of sports promoter Charles C. Pyle. He promised a $25,000 grand prize and claimed the competition would immortalize US Route 66, a 2,400-mile road, mostly unpaved, that subjected the runners to mountains, deserts, mud, and sandstorms, from Los Angeles to Chicago.

When a wealthy Mississippi cotton planter named Isaac Ross died in 1836, his will decreed that his plantation, Prospect Hill, should be liquidated and the proceeds from the sale be used to pay for his slaves' passage to the newly established colony of Liberia in western Africa.
