Bob and Ray




Bob and Ray
 1951 | NBC Radio

A Peabody Award for entertainment in radio to Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding, those young refugees from Boston, artists with many voices at their command, who have made such an asset out of their imaginary characters, Tex and Handsome Harry Backstage, Webley Webster, Mary Magoon, and the tireless baseball scout, Steve Bosco. An average Bob and Ray broadcast, at whatever time of day—for they work, literally, morning, noon, and night—is fast moving, deadly accurate, frequently outrageous, and the most quoted—and although this is their first year of network broadcasting, they already have about them an enviable suggestion of permanence.
