"Ray's Record Rack": sounds like Ray would fit in to WFMU's lineup!
Avatar 12:24pm ChooChoo - ATL:

An aside: Why was The Beatles's "Love Me Do" so popular? What made it so distinct, so attractive to England's teenagers at the time? It was the first record I ever bought and did not like it. What did they hear back then?
  12:34pm David in ATL from NJ:

  12:34pm Keith in OH:
