The Bob and Ray Public Radio Show




The Bob and Ray Public Radio Show
 1982 | Radio Foundation

The Bob and Ray Public Radio Show is deserving of Peabody recognition for at least three reasons. First, it returns Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding to their original medium after a six-year hiatus. Second, it proves that programming does not need to be slickly produced to be interesting and imaginative. Lastly, it provides a welcome comedic respite from a seemingly endless drone of bad news. Our society needs their brand of satirical, self-deprecating, but always gentle, humor.
