Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: C.W. McCall

William Dale Fries Jr., an American singer, activist and politician, was best known by his stage name, C.W. McCall. During the CB (citizens band) radio craze in the 1970s he had a big hit called “Convoy” which is listed on “Rolling Stone” magazine’s 100 Greatest Country Songs of All Time. The song was No. 1 for six weeks and the inspiration for the Sam Peckinpah film “Convoy.” I was curious to know how he came up with his stage name and his CB call name “Rubber Ducky.”
