I have been a Bob and Ray maven since my high school days back in the Sizzlin' '60s. I now have 9.17 gb of their material and will start posting like Webley Webster this weekend.

I was also lucky enough to correspond with the duo for a couple years before Ray's death, so have an autographed copy of their *Write If You Get Work: The Best Of Bob And Ray* first printing. Perhaps I can put a scan of it here at some point.

Stay tuned.
Jeff

Welcome to Matinee With Bob And Ray, direct from Boston. These are some of the earliest B&R shows I have, though I have a metric ton of undated snippets we'll get to eventually.

Here's what Radio Archives has to say about this offering:

Radio Archives wrote:Boston native Robert Brackett Elliott was hired by 5000-watt radio station WHDH shortly after the start of World War II and, upon completing his stint in the service, returned to continue working the station's morning drive time slot as a disc jockey. At that same time, the station also hired Raymond Walter Goulding to do WHDH's hourly newscasts. Goulding was also a fellow New Englander, having been raised in nearby Lowell. The two men soon discovered that they enjoyed a real rapport over the airwaves and, after Goulding's newscast was over, he would often join Elliott in witty, ad-libbed skits that slowly and surely developed a devoted fan base. When WHDH obtained the rights to the Braves-Red Sox games, management offered the two men twenty-five minutes before the start of each game to showcase their unique buffoonery, and dubbed the proceedings with the catchy title "Matinee with Bob and Ray."

Today I'll start things out with four shows from
*January 14, 1949
*January 16, 1951
*February 6, 1951
*February 9, 1951

Much much more to come, folks.
Matinee with Bob And Ray
Enjoy.
Jeff

Thanks, ghemrats. I had the jump-drive collection but can't find it. Matinee with Bob and Ray is one of my all time favorites and I can't wait to listen to good ol' Wuh-Huh-Duh-Huh again.

You have to go to the original link in the first posts - ghemrats, you should probably repost that link every time you add something so people don't get confused (I was too haha)...

I will add a little extra to this thread - the Bob and Ray TV series w/ none other than Audrey Meadows(!) playing the female parts. I am puzzled why this series has never been commercially released, but luckily it was run on Comedy Channel decades ago and some kind soul recorded it. I saw some Suspense TV posts, so am assuming this is OK to post ... (?)

I've started to attempt to go over my Bob and Ray collection to get the dates/titles more in line with reality, but it will take a long time(!). However, in going over the higher-quality encodes posted, I came across some naming issues for the following - it seems like they the filenames got mixed up from the actual shows:

9/7/49 No Mail is actually is actually 12/1/50 A Lot More Serious
9/8/49 is actually 12/2/50
9/9/49 Sit Down Green is actually 10/19/50 Go Ahead - Play The Theme
9/10/49 Brockton Fair is actually 10/20/50 Motorola
10/19/50 Go Ahead Play is actually 9/9/49 Sit Down Green
10/20/50 Motorola is actually 9/10/49 Brockton Fair
12/1/50 More Serious is actually 9/7/49 No Mail
12/2/50 Play Theme Faster is actually 9/8/49

Thanks for the help with dates, dbf. Bob and Ray had such a staggered radio career, sometimes the assigned dates are flexible at best. I'll relabel my shows.

In the meantime, here are more Matinee With Bob And Ray 1951
*04.04.51
*04.18
*05.01
*05.03
*06.01
*06.02
*06.03
*06.22
*09.15
*Undated 1951 show
Enjoy. More to come.

Working on the chronology of Bob and Ray, we now turn to some NBC shows. Most of these are roughly nine minutes long, but showcase the Boys' great wit. Here are the first seven shows:
NBC 1953 Shows 1-7
I don't have any dates beyond the 1953 delineation, so if you know more, please share.
Enjoy.
