"BR on BZ!" Raleigh was always meticulous in his delivery, clean. 
Superior vocal talent. Surprised me when he transitioned so well to 
talk. Not easy to do. He had the unique ability to speak and deliver 
well while being relatable. He worked the phones very well and had a 
great way with women callers (I mean that nicely) and seemed to 
genuinely respect the people with whom he spoke. His recall of previous 
conversations with callers impressed me. I never met Bob but would love 
to someday just to thank him for his service and in keeping up the 
standards. (Perhaps he's on the list - dunno.)
