Good Night Bob,

Bob Elliott of the Radio comedy team Bob and Ray died last Tuesday.  His partner Ray Goulding died in 1990.

Back in the day, NBC had a weekend show that ran from Saturday morning to I suppose Sunday night or Monday morning.   It covered everything , Interviews, music, news, sports, and  all weekend it was sprinkled with hilarious skits by Bob and Ray.  Their format was usually an interviewer and interviewee.   They were a riot, in a dry subtle British-cool type of humor of course.

I read once that their unique chemistry was strictly business behind the mike.

Off the air they hardly spoke and certainly didn't socialize with each other.

It took strange birds to produce their brand of humor non-stop for over a long time span I suppose.
