Here is a comment we received from one of our faithful readers, Bill Smith:
The very first thing I did on your site was to listen to the Ray Guyll interview where in he said what a great thing you are doing with your site for vent. All I can say is, that was a TREMENDOUS understatement! WOW!! I’ll NEVER have enough time in my whole LIFE to savor all the WONDERFUL items!! God bless you for all your hard work & dedication to this BEAUTIFUL art form! Hope to meet you at the ConVENTion next year. This was my first in 18 years!! I was like a kid at Christmas! Met SO many wonderful folks! EVEN met a man & his wife from here in Syracuse N.Y.!! Ya’ never know! Keep up the great work!
Bill was also kind enough to share some of his memorabilia collection of Senor Wences items. First up are pictures of 45 rpm records and sleeves of Senor Wences:
Plus, he sent along the audio of both sides of this record for you to enjoy:
Last but certainly not least, Bill sent a picture of him and his little friend, “Wally”, plus as he states, “Last but by NO means least, is my FAVORITE photo! Senor Wences & I at the testimonial that Al Getler organized & held at the Ramada Inn in Rochelle Park, New Jersey, on April 2nd, 1989.”
Bill, thanks for the wonderful comments about Ventriloquist Central. We (Steve and I) never tire of getting these comments. We work hard to provide as much information as we can for ventriloquists and those that love the art of ventriloquism.
AND, thanks so much for sharing your Senor Wences memorabilia with everyone.
