    Hmm, Never heard of The Partridge Family, Was it any good? It would be interesting to see Dave Madden in an a role that you actually get to see him. He looks pretty similar to the actual character of Bernard Walton. Thanks for the interview. 🙂

    khem, never say you’re the first to comment because you’re probably not, and if you’re not, commentors will think you’re wacko.

    When my dad first showed me the Partridge Family I could
    tell that that was Bernard Walton. I watch the Partridge
    Family pretty often now and really enjoy it. Great job
    Mr. Madden! Thanks Odyssey for having such neat and original characters! God Bless!

    Question: Is Bernard ever coming back to Odyssey

  • jessie on March 19th, 2010 - 10:54pm


    I have never heard of the Partridge Family before, but I asked my Dad about it and he said that it was on during the late 70’s. He said that they were a singing group that was also a family. Also he said in his opinion it was not very good.I would like to see it though.I can not wait to hear the next episode of AIO. Love you Odyssey!

  • Doll on March 19th, 2010 - 11:57pm

  • Xobeo on March 20th, 2010 - 9:30am


    What was the partridge family rated? G, PG, etc. or is it NR.
    btw…the new radio show album 51…clutter….is cut off right in the middle!

  • leanne on March 20th, 2010 - 9:34am


    What did everybody think of the newest Odyssey episode? I thought it was pretty funny. The new season of AIO is turning out a lot better than I thought it would be. Good Work, Odyssey!

  • ben on March 20th, 2010 - 1:43pm

    Oh, and about Dave Madden, I’ve met him once. He was kind of grumpy, just like Bernard. 🙂

  • trulyblessed on March 23rd, 2010 - 9:05am

  • odyssey rock on March 24th, 2010 - 9:04am


    Bernard is so funny!
    I like Do or Diet.

    He sounds like um 45 maybe.

  • Selina on March 24th, 2010 - 1:24pm

  • connie on March 25th, 2010 - 2:57pm


    sweet ACTION!!!

  • Anonymous on March 26th, 2010 - 2:52pm


    For Canadian home video rating it’s rated G. Some of the comments in the show and a small number of other stuff that is a little off color is in the Partridge Family, but it’s a really funny show with some morals too an of course, Dave Madden!

  • squirt Goopy on March 26th, 2010 - 4:14pm


    ya AIO will never be the same with a new voice for Whit, but i’ll live I wonder what happend to Alex an Cal did they get a new voice for David???

  • odyssey#1fan on March 27th, 2010 - 6:02am



  • odyssey#1fan on March 27th, 2010 - 6:05am


    Ive been waiting 4 along time 4 game 4 a mystery! I need more ODYSSEY! 😀

  • MICHELLE on March 30th, 2010 - 7:39am


    Jared rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!But then he like totally grew up and they dont use him anymore.
    They dont use,
    Mandy, Lucy, Jared, Jimmy, Donna, Robyn, Kirk, Dwane, Liz, Grady, Alex, etc. They dont even use the washintons even more since the new family came in. I have to be a little honest. This isn’t what i was exspecting Odyessey to turn into… No offence.

  • Evelyn on March 31st, 2010 - 7:59pm


    I really like the voice of Dave Madden.. He was really funny playng the manager for The Partridge Family.. I don’t watch TV now but I was crazy over that show..with “David Cassidy” and ” Shirley Jones” “Susan Dey” and a few others it was definately a popular show and Dave Madden is still just as funny..Only now I enjoy hearing him in a Christian atmosphere.
    Keep up the good work AIO…..

  • janeyia on April 1st, 2010 - 4:35pm

  • Robyn on April 5th, 2010 - 12:53pm


    I really think you should add the Washington family back. They make the show a lot funnier. Keep up the great work!

    I love all the shows keep up the good work.

  • Denise on December 19th, 2010 - 8:19pm


    As Reuben Kincaid, Dave Madden was the funniest one on the Partridge Family. I enjoyed watching Reuben’s funny expressions. In Adventures in Odyssey, as Bernard Walton, Dave Madden still had those same funny expressions–on the radio. You brought me laughter in the early 70’s and you still bring laughter in my life now. Thanks Dave Madden for a making me laugh. I need laughter when life gets hard.

  • ann on February 13th, 2011 - 7:53pm


    Don’t really like the new episodes as much as the ones before 51…will Bernard be back?

  • isabel on March 24th, 2011 - 6:36pm
