Bill Robinson was a long time friend of Bill Anderson's and a WIRE radio disc jockey and program director in Indianapolis.  Bill Anderson reveals the name of Edgar the Jukebox (Bill Robinson) in his autobiography entitled "Whispering Bill."  The correct name is not listed under the Fandango listing on IMBd.

Sandi,

For clarification, can you post the URL where you've seen this information? Is the incorrect data posted on IMDb or Fandango? IMDb has no control over any errors posted on a different site like Fandango.

The incorrect info is posted on IMBd. Correct info here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fandango_(game_show)
The information is in Bill Anderson's book, Whispering Bill.  I KNOW that Bill Robinson was the voice of Edgar because he is my father and currently lives in Nashville.

Thanks for writing back. I was actually asking for the URL of the incorrect page from IMDb so a contributor or an IMDb representative can update the data.

He is not in IMBd. Fandango was the only show he was ever on. I tried to do it myself but I didn't get very far.

Hi Sandi,

I started the process of changing this item but there is a problem. IMDb will not show people who only have uncredited roles. I get this warning "New names without on-screen credits may not be added. In general, we require at least one on-screen credit before accepting uncredited appearances."

I checked okay on the warning and was able to submit the update but I'm not sure if it will do anything.

Sandi,

Much to my surprise, the change is now live on IMDb. Here is your dad's page if you would like to add some biographical information. (Note: you'll probably need to wait a couple of days for it to be editable.)
