As requested from a twitter follower, I put together this feature of a little known radio show. Most of what I could find centers on the star of the show, Joan Gerber.
On radio, she was the voice of 'The Story Lady,' in a 1968 series of two-minute shorts syndicated by Mel Blanc Superfun Productions.
Her career spanned all manner of voice acting, even making frequent stops on, Adventures in Odyssey
This is what their Wiki page had to say:
Joan Gerber was an American voice actress for a variety of cartoons, perhaps being best known as the voice of Mrs. Beeakly on DuckTales.
Gerber showed a faithfulness to Adventures in Odyssey from the very beginning and voiced many minor roles over the course of the program. These include Teresa Rossini (#6: “The Day After Christmas”), Audrey Nelson (#51 – #52: “Connie”), Mrs. Erskine (#300: “Preacher's Kid”), Vivian Birch (#340 – #341: “Pokenberry Falls, R.F.D.”), and several others.
Interestingly, Gerber often acted in Barclay family episodes as an antagonist (or at least a challenger) to Donna, playing the roles of Grace (#32: “Family Vacation, Part 2”), Mary Hooper (#72: “An Encounter with Mrs. Hooper”), Mrs. Erskine (#300: “Preacher's Kid”), etc.
Gerber died on August 22, 2011.
