Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Lou Christie

Entertainer Lou Christie had some hits in the 60s. “Two Faces Have I,” “Lightning Strikes,”and others. He came to Milwaukee to promote his latest hit and I talked him into joining me at a bar mitzvah that i was emceeing for 50 boys and girls at the Blatz Pavilion in Milwaukee. He said later, “I guess I did anything at that time to get my record played.” He was a church choir boy when he was young, with no musical training. I wondered how he got that very different vocal sound on his records.
