>> Terry Hayes Sales, who recorded more than 900 books for blind, dies at 
>> 94,
>> By Paula Burba.
>>
>> Terry Hayes Sales, a singer and actress who had recorded more than 900 
>> books
>> for the American Printing House for the Blind, died on Monday at a 
>> nursing
>> home in Rowley, Mass. She was 94.
>> Sales moved to Massachusetts from Louisville in August 2009 to be near 
>> her
>> son, Michael Sales, who said she died of Alzheimer's disease. In December
>> 1988, Sales was inducted into the American Foundation for the Blind's
>> Talking Book Hall of Fame, one of two living charter members cited for
>> significant achievement in the narration of talking books. Sales had 
>> "this
>> remarkable ability to tell a story," according to Steve Mullins, studio
>> director for the American Printing House for the Blind, where Sales did 
>> her
>> recordings. "She was very charming." With thousands of books recorded, 
>> all
>> of them staying in circulation for many years, narrators developed
>> followers, Mullins said.
>> "People, in some ways, grew up with her," he said. Among her work are 
>> three
>> narrations of "Little Women," as well as most
>> of the Nancy Drew books.
>> The recordings were produced for the National Library Service for the 
>> Blind
>> and Physically Handicapped, a division of the Library of Congress, which
>> honored Sales in 1998 for her dedicated service of more than 60 years as 
>> a
>> narrator.
>> Sales likely was the narrator longest affiliated with the American 
>> Printing
>> House for the Blind, Mullins said. She began narrating in 1938,
>> just one year after the printing house released its first talking book,
>> "Gulliver's Travels." In 2006, though she was no longer a regularly
>> scheduled narrator at the printing house, Sales participated in the 75th
>> anniversary celebration and marathon recording session of that book with 
>> 44
>> other narrators.
>> Mullins said he was almost certain Sales was the only person to have made
>> the transition from the earliest recordings made on wax through the era 
>> of
>> tape and into the current digital age, recording on all mediums.
>> Sales was a high school sophomore when she landed her first professional 
>> gig
>> as a staff singer on WBBM radio in her hometown of Chicago. She met
>> Louisville native Stuart Sales while he was a student at the University 
>> of
>> Illinois, their son said, and they married in Chicago when she was 19.
>> While her husband later served in the Navy, she did a talk show on WGN in
>> Chicago as well as commercials and serial acting before the couple 
>> returned
>> to Louisville.
>>
>> In Louisville, she continued to sing on radio for both WAVE and WHAS.
>> According to her son, she inherited the show Dale Evans did at WHAS after
>> Evans left.
>> She also appeared in some ensemble television casts, and was involved in
>> numerous local theater projects.
>> When she heard about the talking books at the American Printing House for
>> the Blind, her son said she considered it an acting opportunity.
>> Sales also funded the launch of Audio Description at The Kentucky Center 
>> for
>> the Performing Arts in 1991 in memory of her husband, who died in 1987. 
>> The
>> program provides narrators who broadcast live descriptions of the action
>> onstage to audience members during performances.
>> She also was the voice on the center's 10th anniversary "Tour on Tape," 
>> and
>> co-wrote that script.
>> A graveside service is planned for 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday at The Temple
>> cemetery.
>> A memorial service will be held sometime next year, her son said.
>> Herman Meyer & Son funeral home is handling arrangements.
>> Reporter Paula Burba can be reached at (502) 582-4800.
