Bob Barnes   Biography

Bob was kind enough to fill us in on his career. In an email from Bob; "...After leaving WKIS(-AM 740), I started an independent production studio called Startrip Productions, Inc. I produced radio commercials for ad agencies and soundtracks for audio visual presentations (many of which won numerous ADDY Awards) before selling the company and moving to Ventura, CA. I worked in LA at Buzzy's Recording Services for about a year before returning to Orlando and opening Bob Barnes Creative Services. In about 1980, when the motion picture studios moved to Orlando, I began doing some professional on-camera work including commercials, TV shows, and addition to audio production. In about 1989, I closed the production studio to return to my home state of Indiana, where I've been doing voice-over work ever since..."
