Anyone who switched to the crime series “TKKG” in their prepubertal radio play phase, i.e. shortly after “Benjamin Blümchen” and developed a serious addiction, grew up with their voice: Wolfgang Draeger. He was Inspector Glockner for the first three dozen episodes (and again later with a few interruptions for a few cassettes). So the father of Gabi, the G in TKKG. A job in which he was able to work with his son Sascha, who has been speaking Tim, the T in TKKG, since the early 1980s.
Born in Berlin in 1928, Draeger was also in great demand as a voice actor. He became the regular German voice of Woody Allen (who is said to have enjoyed his work very much). But he also voiced James Cagney, Alain Delon, Jack Lemmon and Jack Nicholson, among others. And in “Sesame Street” he was the voice of the yellow bird Bibo.
As his children have now announced, Wolfgang Draeger died on Monday at the age of 95.
