Old Time Radio
 
Boston native Bob Elliott was hired by 5000-watt radio station WHDH, working the station's morning drive time slot as a disc jockey. Ray Goulding was doing WHDH's hourly newscasts. The two men soon discovered that they enjoyed a real rapport over the airwaves and, after Goulding's newscast was over, he would often join Elliott in witty, ad-libbed skits that slowly and surely developed a devoted fan base. When WHDH obtained the rights to the Braves-Red Sox games, management offered the two men twenty-five minutes before the start of each game to showcase their unique buffoonery, and dubbed the proceedings with the catchy title Matinee with Bob and Ray.
 
For Bob and Ray fans that are only familiar with their network offerings on NBC, CBS, or NPR, the programs make for fascinating listening, offering a revealing insight into the workings of local radio during the 1940s. Matinee can best be described as sort of a free-form style of comedy jazz; nothing is scripted (well, about 90% is unscripted) and the program allows both men to indulge in flights of fancy, often veering onto offbeat comedic tangents from the most mundane mentions.
 
Matinee with Bob and Ray continued on WHDH in various formats and time slots until 1951. Beginning with quarter and half-hour shows on NBC and also launching their television show. Their five-minute appearances on NBC Radio's Monitor began in 1955, and four years later they moved to CBS for what many fans consider their finest hour, Bob and Ray Present the CBS Radio Network (1959-60). After a two-year period of concentrating on work in commercials, they returned to New York's WHN for an all-afternoon show, and moved to WOR around 1973. In the 1980s, they were entertaining public radio audiences with their NPR series, which ended in 1987.
 
Radio Archives is proud to present the two men at their finest, with Volume 7 of hilarious Matinee with Bob & Ray shows in Sparkling sound.

May 1941

Read by Mark Finfrock

 

 

The Paladin of Law and Order!
 
The Red Mask! When he dons his crimson mask with the white skull and crossbones, he becomes the shrewd, implacable foe of gangsterism and vice, whom the whole underworld soon learns to fear and hate.

Black Book Detective eBook
#31 January 1939
 
Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
 
Black Book Detective magazine was probably best known for its long-running series of adventure stories featuring the crimefighter known as The Black Bat. But The Black Bat didn't appear until six years into the magazine's run with the July 1939 issue. The magazine first hit the newsstands with the June 1933 issue. For the next six years, it tried different approaches. Issue one began with a featured novel and several backup short stories. The following year it started promoting "three new complete novels" in each magazine, but abandoned that approach after four issues. It then tried shorter novelets, combined with short stories. In 1935 and 1936, it tried the "weird menace" approach, featuring scantily-clad women in peril on the covers, then switched back to hard crime. In 1938 they tried featuring recurring characters in their main novel. Gentleman thief Raffles appeared in two consecutive issues. Jonathan Drake, Ace Manhunter appeared in three issues.
 
The editors struck gold with The Black Bat, who first appeared in the July 1939 issue. Supposedly blind District Attorney Tony Quinn was secretly the master crime fighter known as The Black Bat. The stories were credited to the house name of G. Wayman Jones, but in actuality were written mainly by Norman A. Daniels. The Black Bat stories ran exclusively in the bi-monthly Black Book Detective magazine until it finally printed its last issue in the Winter of 1953. Black Book Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
