Ray was on "Wait! Wait!"

https://www.npr.org/podcasts/344098539/wait-wait-don-t-tell-me Click on Lance Reddick. Starts around 10:00. He was featured as an example of someone with a Boston accent, and he went on to deny he had such an accent and had worked to get rid of the accent he had. I will say it didn’t sound like him.

It was all tongue in cheek - working to extinguish his accent. I could never tell Tom and Ray apart by listening - but this guy sounded like one of them - and had a Boston accent.

Not to be a smart alec . . .

But I could tell Tommy and Ray apart on the radio

In my opinion, Tommy had the more memorable accent

The only way I differentiated them was Ray, is he the big one? reminded me so much of the rat in beakmans world, can’t find a link, some guy in a rat costume with an east coat accent,

Was good to hear Ray again. Sure would like it if he was on the radio more often.

Yeah, I’m always disappointed when guests on radio shows phone it in, as I was this time too.

I get it, you don’t want to fly to Chicago to be on the show, but the least you could do is go to a studio or use Skype to improve the sound quality.

Tom was the tall one. Ray was the shorter of the two.
