The World is Buzzing Harold Camping, Who is He?

Harold Camping, the 89-year-old retired civil
engineer,who founded Family Radio Worldwide,
an independent ministry that has broadcasted his
 prediction around the world
 Google Search and Twitter are trending Harold Camping, but who is he? To put it in a sentence, he is the Man behind the Prophecies of Judgement Day(Which for some reason never happened on May 21!). To put it on a more comic role, remember the Charlie Frost from the Movie 2012? The man who keeps shouting in the Radio till the wrath of the Earth swallows him? Exactly! Correct me if I'm wrong, I heard about Harold Camping only two days back, and this was the Personality that came to my mind.
 For the last 50 years, the deep and sonorous voice of Harold Camping has reached millions of listeners of Christian gospel radio in the United States. Quotes He is the President of Family Radio. I'm not lucky enough to hear his voice, but almost all Websites quote this sentence. It should be special, share a link if you have captured his voice.
 Again, I'd like to quote from

 "In 1970, Mr Camping published the Biblical Calendar of History, in which he dated the creation of the world to 11,013BC and the flood which Noah survived to 4990BC. His timeframe was based on the idea that the word "begat" in the Old Testament does not necessarily imply an immediate father-son relationship, but could refer to a patriarch and a distant descendent.

He also argues that a calendar exists in the text of the Bible which details the imminent end of the church age, implying that churches are no longer used by God for salvation, and the Rapture, when Christians will gather to meet Christ, and finally the end of the world. The current date for the Rapture is May 21, 2011, and Mr Camping believes, according to Thessalonians 4:15-17, that this is when "the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord".
Five months later, on October 21, God will completely destory the earth, according to Mr Camping's prediction. He had previously predicted the Rapture would occur in September 1994"
 Apparently Harold Camping has almost disappeared after the Failure of the Judgement Day prophecy.
