I love the Bob & Ray radio show! The deadpan and the awful voices and the surprisingly abstract skits... sometimes corny, but often very funny. Anyone knows where I can find more? Think I've exhausted the Internet Archive.

It's distressing how this year has started out with this thread continually at the top.
Wondering whether to add another confirmed kill to my hit list. A friend had a birthday near the beginning of the month, and I shared the Seekers' hit version of "I Know I'll Never Find Another You." (So far, they're all still alive.) I knew we used to play a record with that song but not their version, and found Sonny James also had a hit with it, so shared it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfLLWRf2xuc I had never mentioned Sonny James before, but he took till near the end of the month to die, and really if the victim does not die within the week, they probably shouldn't count, but will mention him anyway. I never did identify the record my friend and I played back then, as he doesn't have any of his old records, and don't know who else may have covered that song.

As the familiar sounds of spring draw nearer, trees show signs of budding, and youngster begin to play catch in the street with well-warn mitts, . . . the singing of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" will not be quite as joyful this season. The loss of this American icon and gentleman who entertained us for decades has saddened the sports world: Joe (Joseph Henry) Garagiola, Sr., 1926-2016 http://www.today.com/news/joe-...layer-dies-90-t82216

Oh, no! Garry Shandling and Earl Hamner on the same day! Nothing to do now but crawl under a rock, give up, and die!

Glad I got a chance, at Ray's 89th birthday, to meet Mr. Hamner and tell him how much I enjoyed his work. By the way Doug, thanks again for encouraging me, in your reply to one of my posts back in 2009, to attend that bash.
