Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Freddie and the Dreamers

Did you dance “The Freddie” back in the 60s? That was one of the hits that Freddie and the Dreamers recorded in 1965. The 5’3” Freddie Garrity tried to teach the dance to me. All you had to do was bounce around with your arms and legs flying. Trust me, you didn’t want to see me doing this. I didn’t get many straight answers from the five Brits when I asked about their act, difference between American and British girls, Freddie’s favorite female type, and their favorite British joke. This crazy conversation was all that was left of the outtakes from an interview I did for WITI-TV6. The piece that ended up on the air was lost when they moved their studios to Brown Deer Road.
