Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Everly Brothers

Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame members Don and Phil, the Everly Brothers, had a string of county rock hits in the 50s and 60s. Those many chart toppers included “Bye Bye Love,” “’Til I Kissed You,” and “All I Have to do is Dream.” We talked about how they got started, their music, their relationship with each other, and even how they met their wives. Phil was married to record producer Archie Bleyer’s daughter. Their song “Bye Bye Love” had been rejected by 30 other acts and ended up being No. 2 on the pop charts behind Elvis Presley’s “Teddy Bear.” The Beatles admitted they were influenced by the Everly Brothers and based their vocal arrangement of “Please Please Me” on “Cathy’s Clown.”
