Paul Ray Remembrance

For almost forty years, Paul Ray gave Austin it’s Saturday night soundtrack: “Twine Time,” a radio show that’s more than just a radio show. That’s thanks to the music–a decades-spanning collection of blues, soul, R&B, and rock and roll–and Ray’s trademark knowledge, passion, personality.

In this half-hour special, we highlight Ray’s extraordinary career as a DJ, musician, and Austinite. Everyone from Jimmie Vaughan and Denny Freeman; Eve Monsees and Alejandro Escovedo; and Kevin Russell and Margaret Moser speak about Ray’s impact. Listen below.

Hosted by Jody Denberg. Produced by Art Levy, with assistance from Rick McNulty, Stephen Rice, Laura Willis, David Brown, Jay Trachtenberg, Rebecca McInroy, Susan Antone, and Matt Reilly.
