If you are and old one foot on a banana peel and the other foot in a grave, or damn close, you remember the comedy team of Bob and Ray. (Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding)bob3

Sadly, Bob Elliott passed away Tuesday at the age of 92 at his home in Maine.

Yes, (minus the banana peel and grave) “I” fondly remember Bob and Ray from my radio days, specifically for one particular routine that, to me, will always remain a timeless piece of comedic genius, and a classic.

It is called, “Charles The Poet,” and in memory of Ray Elliott I’d like to play it one last time.
