Bob and Ray Matinee

"This was the first regular radio series by the master absurdist improvisors, on Boston's WHDH, between 1946 and 1951. Bob Elliott was a WHDH morning DJ; Ray Goulding did the news on the hour, and what began as occasional little ad-libbed buffoonery became a regular series when WHDH asked them to do 25 minutes before a Red Sox or Braves game or to go on during rain delays." Here are 30 of those shows. Link in comments.
