Somewhere between Bob Hope and Howard Stern, there was Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding. To describe their humor is akin to describing a haircut in a phone conversation- you just have to experience it for yourself. From 1946 until 1992, this duo displayed a different kind of funny that greatly made fans out of Carl Reiner, Bob Newhart, Norman Lear, Stan Freberg, Kurt Vonnegut and David Letterman.
This and next week, you’ll hear two hours of some of the best sketches from their storied career.
Hour 1 is available for your listening and intellectual pleasure.
