      I think -- I wonder if it's a different physique, more than anything else.
      Although I'm told that at this time he had not had any voice training.

        Now that's a surprise, surprise, surprise! I always knew Jim Nabors could sing better than he could act: that deep baritone of his would have been as at home at the Metropolitan Opera as much as the Grand Ole Opry - but I always thought that it was the Lure Of Hollywood (well, TVLand, anyway) that kept him off the musical stage (though, IIRC, he always kept up a few singing gigs even in the Gomer Pyle era).

        Anyway, good for you, Jim! Mazel Tov!
