This handy hilarious handbook reveals the reason radio ranked Bob and Ray as American’s #1 comedy team in just two words: Tom Koch. Actually, the book is 68 pages, which may seem like a two-word booklet, but in reality is the result of insidious inspiration: we want its convenient size to fit inside your pocket or to be easily concealed behind the covers of more respectable books in public. Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding were an American comedy team during the Old Time Radio era that spanned five decades. Their format characteristically satirized media, as they conducted radio and television interviews with off-the-wall dialogue presented in a generally deadpan style as a serious broadcast. Informal on the air banter and improvised comedy routines echoed through the studios of NBC, CBS, and Mutual networks, and on New York City stations WINS, WOR, and WHN, and they were popular on National Public Radio (NPR) up until 1987. Some of their radio episodes were released on recordings, and others were adapted into graphic story form for publication in Mad magazine. Bob and Ray disguised their voices as a variety of recurring characters, creating a multi-layered world that parodied the real-life world of radio broadcasting. In the early 1950s, the two had their own 15-minute television series, entitled simply Bob & Ray on NBC with Audrey Meadows as a cast regular. During the second season, the title changed to Club Embassy, and Cloris Leachman joined the cast as a regular. Bob and Ray also hosted a Mark Goodson-Bill Todman game show, The Name's the Same, which was emceed originally by Robert Q. Lewis. In 1971, Bob and Ray lent their voices to the children's television program, The Electric Company, in a pair of short animated films. In 1979, they returned to national TV on the original Saturday Night Live. Bob and Ray also appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show several times in the late 1950s and early 1960s; they appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and on The David Letterman Show throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Bob and ray starred in a pair of two-man stage shows: The Two and Only on Broadway in 1970, and A Night of Two Stars at Carnegie Hall in 1984. They also did extensive work in radio and television commercials, and enjoyed supporting roles in the feature films Cold Turkey (1971) with Dick Van Dyke and Author! Author! (1982). "I love it . . .

Before Jackie Robinson integrated major league baseball in 1947, black and white ballplayers had been playing against one another for decades—even, on rare occasions, playing with each other. Interracial contests took place during the off-season, when major leaguers and Negro Leaguers alike fattened their wallets by playing exhibitions in cities and towns across America. These barnstorming tours reached new heights, however, when Satchel Paige and other African- American stars took on white teams headlined by the irrepressible Dizzy Dean. Lippy and funny, a born showman, the native Arkansan saw no reason why he shouldn’t pitch against Negro Leaguers. Paige, who feared no one and chased a buck harder than any player alive, instantly recognized the box-office appeal of competing against Dizzy Dean’s "All-Stars." Paige and Dean both featured soaring leg kicks and loved to mimic each other’s style to amuse fans. Skin color aside, the dirt-poor Southern pitchers had much in common. Historian Timothy M. Gay has unearthed long-forgotten exhibitions where Paige and Dean dueled, and he tells the story of their pioneering escapades in this engaging book. Long before they ever heard of Robinson or Larry Doby, baseball fans from Brooklyn to Enid, Oklahoma, watched black and white players battle on the same diamond. With such Hall of Fame teammates as Josh Gibson, Turkey Stearnes, Mule Suttles, Oscar Charleston, Cool Papa Bell, and Bullet Joe Rogan, Paige often had the upper hand against Diz. After arm troubles sidelined Dean, a new pitching phenom, Bob Feller—Rapid Robert—assembled his own teams to face Paige and other blackballers. By the time Paige became Feller’s teammate on the Cleveland Indians in 1948, a rookie at age forty-two, Satch and Feller had barnstormed against each other for more than a decade. These often obscure contests helped hasten the end of Jim Crow baseball, paving the way for the game’s integration. Satchel Paige, Dizzy Dean, and Bob Feller never set out to make social history—but that’s precisely what happened. Tim Gay has brought this era to vivid and colorful life in a book that every baseball fan will embrace.
