Don Wooten, 1950 grad and 2006 honorary doctorate recipient, is a well-known and beloved Quad Citian, as indicated in a Quad-City Times story by Barb Ickes.
"If his picture didn't accompany this column, it would be fun to ask you to guess who I'm talking about.
"The first hint would be: He has one of the most recognizable voices in the Quad-Cities.
"Then I'd count the hats on Don Wooten's hat tree: radio host, TV personality, weatherman, state senator, newspaper columnist, producer, actor, teacher, manager, public speaker, ad man, seminary-school dropout.
"But it's that voice that gives him away."
