BobandRay.com is dedicated to keeping the work of legendary radio humorists Bob & Ray alive and available to the public. We accomplish this by producing Bob & Ray albums and maintaining the Bob & Ray Permanent Archive, a collection of everything related to the duo. The website also contains information about, and phots of Bob & Ray.
BobandRay.com is a division of The Radio Foundation, Inc., a non profit tax-exempt radio production company located in New York City.
BOB & RAY PERMANENT ARCHIVE
The Bob & Ray Permanent Archive is our project to collect everything Bob & Ray ever did in any medium, including radio, television, and ephemera like Piels beer coasters, playbills and other collectibles.
Recordings from the Archive – mostly contributed by fans like you – are the source for new Bob & Ray albums. The entire Archive will one day be donated to a major museum. If you have Bob & Ray material for the Archive, please contact us.
