Voice of Judy Jetson on air with WFDU
Iconic voice actress Janet Waldo will be a guest on 89.1 WFDU FM's “That Modern Rock Show” hosted by Dave “Ghosty” Wills on Saturday, September 8 at 10 p.m.
Waldo is best know as the voice of Judy Jetson in the popular cartoon series “The Jetsons,” but she's also had a long and distinguished career in radio and film as well as television.
Radio listeners in the 1940s knew her best as the title character of "Meet Corliss Archer" on CBS. During her 10-year stint as the quintessential swooning all-American teenage girl, Janet Waldo was also a regular on “The Adventures Of Ozzie and Harriet” in both its radio and television incarnations. Waldo also made a memorable appearance on “I Love Lucy” as a fickle teenager who was enamored with Desi Arnez.
When Waldo landed the part of Judy Jetson in 1962 for the Hanna-Barbera animation studios, she was thrilled to learn that voice acting was very much like performing on radio and she's been one of the top voice talents in the business ever since. Whether playing the part of Judy Jetson, Penelope Pitstop or Josie in “Josie and The Pussycats,” Waldo has entertained generations of children and adults.
Join “Ghosty” for a wide-ranging interview tracing Waldo's career in motion pictures, radio and television.
“That Modern Rock Show” airs every Saturday night at 9 p.m. on 89.1 WFDU FM.
Although guests on the program are generally musicians, recent interviews also include actress Julie Newmar, Mamie Van Doren, Ben Jones of “The Dukes Of Hazzard,” Claudia Christian of “Babylon 5,” Walter Koenig of “Star Trek” and others in entertainment and broadcasting.
