Tom Ray - 2016

Tom Ray adopted the nom de plume Papa Ray for his weekly Monday blues program on KDHX. As a veteran of 30-plus years, Tom Ray brought his unique music perspective to KDHX listeners, focusing on blues cuts that were not rock-based. His life was totally immersed in music, from professional deejay work to ownership of Vintage Vinyl, the St. Louis area’s largest retail outlet for vintage vinyl and discs. He also performed regularly with local blues groups on vocals/harmonica.
