I've started to keep track of Himan Brown's cameo appearances now that I've gotten familiar with his character voices. Lately I've heard him as a hotel porter (#793) an apartment house super (#787) and in a pivotal role as a pawnbroker (#782).


I once spoke to Mr. Brown on the telephone. It was in '98 during the revival. We spoke for about 5 minutes. He was very kind and told me about the other radio shows that he had produced. I told him that I thought Radio Mystery Theater was the greatest radio show and all history. He really lit up when I said that and became quite animated. You could tell he was so proud of Radio Mystery Theater. Of all the shows that he produced I think it was his baby. A truly great man.


Mr. Brown was also in countless other episodes, although his name was not listed in the credits. Listen for him in The Other Soul, Revenge is Sweet, and many many more. He frequently plays a cop or other smaller roles.


The Blue Sedan was another episode that Himan Brown was in, but not mentioned. He was a police chief in that one.


Great director/producer, but his acting is only surpassed by Mercedes McCambridge. LOL
