  WIKIPEDIA   Just as Superman's true identity remained a secret, the identity of radio actor-announcer Clayton 'Bud' Collyer also remained a secret from 1940 until 1946.  That well known signature opening, one of the most famous in radio history, was delivered by Jackson Beck, the announcer-narrator for the program from 1943 to 1950.
