Post to the Host:
For past few months I have been listening to Prairie Home Companion, and especially loved the segment about Guy Noir, P.I.

At the beginning and at the end of the Guy Noir segment, a female voice announced in quite a sensual tone, "Guy Noir, Private Eye" — that's one of the best voices I ever heard on the radio.

This week I heard a masculine voice do the same announcement, which I think is rather a spoiler. I really wish you'd continue to use the same voice as before.

Rick, I couldn't agree more. The sensuous female voice is that of Sue Scott, who is not only a talented radio actor but also what we in the business refer to as a "hottie". She is tall and lissome and willowy and she has men hanging over the balcony rail, panting and moaning. But the masculine voice is also that of Sue Scott. She can play both women and men. I wish she'd stick with the sensuous stuff, but I guess there is another side of her — a gun-toting, chainsaw-swinging, tobacco-chewing side — that she needs to express.
