Just got a note from crime writer Mark Coggins rounding up some stuff about the late Bill Arney on Twitter. One of the links offers Bill reading something by Mark on KQED. I bet there’s a lot of Bill’s voice work scattered around the web — remember that episode of The Fog Files on KFOG that profiled Bill? It was up online for years.
But I guess the main thing to check out is an article covering Bill in his residency in Sam Spade’s apartment in 891 Post. Lots of pictures.
I think moreso than his role as the Voice of Noir, long term Bill will be remembered as the guy who championed the Hammett apartment and restored it to its historic glory. Put them together, though, and you’ve got a great legacy.
