Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Elwood Edwards’s voice is heard more than 27 million times a day (which comes to more than 18,000 times per minute). Edwards is the man behind those special three words—no, not "I love you," but "You’ve got mail."

this is cool...where did you find this?
BTW- have watched Shatner's Raw Nerve and it's pretty good. Fran Dreschler has quite a story. Wow.

You know, Elwood's voice is a tad annoying, but I feel bad when I don't hear it!

I never hear it any more since I haven't used AOL for a long time, but the memory lingers. :-)

From the Useless Knowledge gadget on iGoogle.

My sister interviewed him a while back (he lives -or did then- in the Puget Sound area in WA).
He said that people recognized his voice and for some reason wanted to hear him say "you've got mail" live-which is odd. It's not a talent or anything fun to see visually.
(but my sister did ask him to say it)

Joy, you are the trivia queen!!! Nice to put a person with the voice.
