Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Bobby Vee

Bobby Vee was a teen idol in the 60s and had six gold records in his career. He was also a songwriter and appeared in films. Bobby had unusual beginnings, including a big break that came from a tragedy. His producer Snuffy Garrett picked one of his hit records up. There was a stack of songs at the publisher’s office, one for Bobby and the other for the Everly Brothers. Snuffy picked up both stacks and the song “Run to Him” was in the pile. It was written for the Everly Brothers, but became a hit for Bobby Vee in 1961. I was surprised when he told me about his only No. 1 hit, a song he knew would be a hit. Singer-songwriter Carol King wrote it.
