I remember once, sometime in the early 70s, I was walking down Tremont Street along the
Common, and I suddenly heard Willie Whistle, saying, "Hi, how're you doin'?" I did a
double-take and saw him walking along, in costume, with some other people, and he
seemed to enjoy my reaction.
Whenever I saw him on TV, I assumed the "voice" was dubbed somehow with a special
effect, but apparently he was able to do that by himself. I've always wondered how.
