Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Desi Arnaz Jr.

Desiderio Alberto Arnaz IV is better known as Desi Arnaz Jr. He is an actor and musician. He’s also the son of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz Sr. His birth was part of TV history. Lucy’s pregnancy was part of the “I Love Lucy” show. That storyline was very controversial at that time. At 12 years of age Desi was a drummer with Dino, Desi and Billy. They had two hit records. Desi appeared in several movies including the “Mambo Kings” in 1992, where he played his father’s character, Ricky Ricardo. Little did I know that Desi was involved in drugs and alcohol when I emceed their concert at Milwaukee County Stadium in the 60s. He was 15 years old. He discusses that and more.
