Name that narrator! My mom just sent me on a (fruitless) Google/Amazon quest to find a narrator from a 1950s vinyl recorded version of Peter and the Wolf.

The only details she can remember about the narrator was that his voice was "shaky", he maybe "sounded gay" and it was somewhat high-pitched, but a very good performance. She thinks he would be pretty well known for the era and (will) recognize the name when she hears it, but so far any lists I could find of narrators of this piece (and audio samples on Amazon) didn't set off any lightbulbs.
