What is contained on this page is only a partial listing of radio shows or specific episodes that Sam Edwards appeared in. There are many, many more to be discovered, either through casting call sheets, old scripts, newspaper notices, or the like, and they will be added as we find them. Some are more difficult to ascertain, since they comprised regular continuing series over a number of years. When he was a frequent but not episodic cast member, specific dates are hard to pinpoint because of how casting was indexed, and in some cases not all voices were acknowledged. For the first part of this listing, the shows are listed followed by episodes, if known, and are roughly in chronological order starting with his first appearance on that show. A small synopsis plus Sam's role is included where it could be found. Other names are included as a reference of the actors he often worked with. The second part of this listing includes shows he was known to have appeared on, but with no date or episode information. They are arranged alphabetically as a chronology cannot be accurately ascertained. There is MUCH more to come on this page. Updated 09/27/2007.
