I always pictured Frank Black as being heroin-thin.

Turns out, he looks a lot more like the gay guy who used to do movie reviews on The Daily Show.

Black, youngish and ultra-hip but not handsome. I was listening to him do the station promos for a defunct standards station in LA for years without seeing a photo of him. It just came as a surprise.

Frank DeCaro. And yes, Frank Black looks a bit crazy, but not as crazy as you might expect him to from his music.

Yeah, it's weird to see Dennis Day on Jack Benny's TV show, when he's playing the same character as on radio, except you can't hide that by this time, he was a middle aged man. He really was in his early 20s when he first appeared in 1939, and they just stuck with it because he was so good in the role.

An addition to radio actors who's looks don't match their voice- Walter Tetley, the actor who played Sherman in the Mister Peabody segments, Leroy on the Great Gildersleeve, and Julius on Phil Harris-Alice Faye was an adult man. How he wound up with that voice is rather disturbing.

When I heard that song from Batman I pictured Seal as more of a Nat King Cole type, not someone who looks like he went face-first through a windshield in an auto accident and got patched up by a really drunken doctor using old inner tubes to replace his skin.

The first time I heard Robert Randolph and the Family Band, I was taken by the voice of an old bluesman who'd been kicking it around for decades. I thought, why haven't I been listening to this guy all of my life? Turns out he about 25 years old.

It was not as bad as The Crying Game, but that is not a nice thing to do to a heterosexual.
Dude. You just raped my childhood.

I remember, as a teen, calling my older sister into the living room the first time I saw an Eminem video. Neither of us could believe he was white.

A part of me is still convinced that "Laughter in the Rain" is a lesbian love song.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Charlie Pride or Michael McDonald.

I have a theory that these two (at a ripe old age, one hopes) must pass from this earth at the very same moment, lest some kind of dangerous mass-energy singularity rend the fabric of the universe.

Another category that's better than 50% surprising is when we finally get to see the offscreen announcer for game shows, like Johnny Gilbert on Jeopardy!.

My first image of The Lone Ranger was made before I ever saw the TV and movie versions, but I was not impressed when I eventually saw a picture of Brace Beemer years later. Nowhere close to how I thought Lone would look.

KISS was way uglier than I expected when they first removed the makeup in 1983. Holy shit!

Also speaking of old time radio, I think just about everyone knew that Amos and Andy were played by two white guys. They might have been surprised, though, to learn that Amos' daughter was played by a Chinese-American!

Israel Kamakawiwoʻole is my pick for looking the least like his honeyed voice sounds.
I pictured some mixed race guy of undetermined pedigree, with a slight frame befitting the tender vocals.

I prefer the real guy far more than the Israel I had imagined.

I was surprised by James Dobson. When I was going to school, my parents always listened to the radio to get the weather and stuff like that, and just left it on until we left. Dobson's Focus on the Family would have this brief interlude around the hour. For some reason, I expected him to look like Pat Robertson.

I also learned that Lum N Abner reruns would play at 6:45 AM, I wasn't surprised at all by what they looked like--until I saw them without the facial hair!

BTW, there's new Lum N Abner content now!

Steve Miller, Muddy Waters, Patsy Cline were all a little stouter than I thought they'd be. Most of the musicians (that I've noticed) tend to have an ectomorphic body type.

Once upon a time, having a nice large ribcage for loud, resonant tones was a plus in music.

Now they just use skinny things, body mics and Autotune.

The mention of Amos and Andy reminds me of another one. Fibber McGee & Molly introduced the character of Beulah, the maid. Beulah was later spun off into her own show, and then made into a TV show, the later incarnations featured the character being played by a heavyset black woman- how most listeners probably viewed that character in their minds. But originally, Beulah was played by a young, thin white man named Marlin Hurt! Live audiences of the Fibber McGee & Molly didn't know this. You can hear the audience howling and screaming with laughter during the routines they did with Beulah!

But on a similar note, I'll add Garrison Keillor. I grew up listening to him with all the folksyness and slow speech patterns I always pictured a grandfatherly looking guy. Instead, he looks like some weird troll-monster. He's definately in the right profession.

Before seeing her picture I envisoned Gross as similar to a younger Leslie Stahl.

I remember being a big Al Stewart fan in the 70s, before the Year of the Cat mania occurred. I had never seen a picture, but was surprised at how skinny of a waif he was. He could have used a couple of cheeseburgers, if you know what I mean.

I was surprised that he was as masculine as he was. A slim cigarette holder and capezios wouldn't have surprised me.

That's how it worked for me, too. I got an LP of his from the library with his picture on it, and when I first listened to it, I wondered if the record and the cover sleeve had got mixed up. Now he's probably my favourite of the old blues hounds.

I pictured Bela Fleck, with his name and unique mix of genres (a cross between bluegrass and jazz), to be an older, seasoned musician, maybe black or European, or both, but definitely a distinct looking character. I wasn't sure what instrument he played, and when I first saw a video of his band performing, I wondered who the average white guy who could pass as an insurance salesman was on banjo.

He's a lot thinner now.

Lighter too, in part due to losing a leg to diabetes.

Still rockin', though.

Holy crap, he looks horrible in that Wikipedia picture. He was a pretty okay looking fellow back in the 1980s, if a bit pasty white.

A couple more radio voices that surprised me when I saw their pictures:

BBC's Neil Nunes. He sounds like a guy I know, with an British accent that has an unusual twinge, so I always pictured him as a tall, rotund, bald white guy with a big moustache... with a monocle to reflect his vague Britishness. Dude's a nice-looking young-ish Jamaican chap. Looking online, I see bitching about his Jamaican accent (via this article on annoying radio voices), but I definitely don't hear it, and I also like his voice and overpronunciation. (I do like a quote from that linked article: “His voice sounds like it is coming out of the funnel of a container ship.”)

NPR's Diane Rehm. I figured she was old, but her spasmodic dysphonia made me think she was doddering, frail, and covered with cobwebs. She's older, yes, but is the very representative of a "handsome woman."

And one voice that I *knew* but still shocked me... Meshell Ndegeocello. I knew who she was, liked her singing and deep voice, but for ages I thought the main vocals in Basement Jaxx's Right Here's the Spot was some male pop singer. Then I bothered looking at the liner notes and was all . In my defense, everyone I've played the song for has thought it was a guy (usually Justin Timberlake).

The first time I heard her, I thought it was Ella. I think the song was Leonard Cohen's Dance Me To The End Of Love...

Madeleine

On listening more I have to agree with your Billie Holiday call but not your white chick :-)

Jay Kay of Jamiroquai did not look like I imagined
Dobie Gray(RIP) was a black guy but I used to imagine an older, white Willie Nelson type guy.
Sophie B.Hawkins, with her song "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover", I thought she would be a hottie but she was pretty average.
However as a kid if I imagined a singer was an attractive woman, chances were most likely they were. Examples include Lady Miss Kier of Deee-lite, Merril Bainbridge(had a hit called "Mouth"), and Amy Grant.
But number one of all time has to be for me Ali Campbell of UB40.

The lead singer of Romeo Void ("Never Say Never") also shocked me.

On the flip side the singer of Midnight Oil turned out to be the way I expected him to look, which is the only time that has happened.

Madonna. First time I saw her I found her disappointingly plain, especially during the "Material Girl" MV where she was copying Marilyn. But she grew on me.

Patti Smyth. She could have been younger and more hyper.

Lady Gaga - I still don't know how she really looks.
