I wonder how old you were when you started watching? I started when I was very very young and so it was an appropriate character for me to be watching at that age. Then as I got older I honestly never thought about how he acted or thought it was strange. That was just they way he had always been. Plus I was a very sensitive kid and liked how kind he was.

I'd love to hear this, if you have a recording. In fact, I'd REALLY love it if you could provide a list of all these artists you're saying have sampled Mr. Rogers. I'm not familiar with many examples where his voice has been used. If I can get enough tracks together that would make for a great episode of SAR.

mine is called "Draining" and you can hear it at my website:
Could I talk you into sending me a CDR of your Rogers sound-collage, too? I could trade if it would seal the deal...
