Wow-- you guys are really jogging my memory.  Bob and Ray went national, but yes they were beloved in Boston.  They were on the same station as Hum and Strum, as I recall (not a joke-- there really was a vocal duo named Hum & Strum-- Max Zides and Tom Courier, I believe; they were very popular in the late 40s/ early 50s).  I agree on Larry Glick, may he rest in peace.  And Jess Cain-- we really did have some amazing personalities on the air here...
