WBA Hall of Famer Bob Barry ruled Milwaukee's airwaves in the '60s and '70s. He interviewed the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, James Brown, Dolly Parton, Sophia Loren, Gregory Peck, Dick Clark, Cher and many more. If a band or musician came to town, he met them with a microphone. Barry has collected remarkable recordings of these encounters which he’s now sharing with the public. SUBSCRIBE!

Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Herman’s Hermits

I sat down in a Pfister hotel room with Peter Moone and Herman’s Hermits. Peter explained how they got their group name and surprised me with the name of his favorite recording artists. Lead guitarist Derek Leckenby shared his thoughts on some of their recordings. We’ll hear a couple of crazy voice tracks and some sound from their July 1965 concert at the Milwaukee auditorium.  The photo with Peter Noone was taken in his hotel room at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee. The group picture was taken backstage at the Milwaukee auditorium, July 24, 1965.
