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: Mel Blanc

Who doesn’t know who Bugs Bunny is? Or Barney Rubble from “The Flintstones” or Woody Woodpecker? These cartoon characters and many others were done by the man of a thousand voices, actor, and radio personality Mel Blanc. I asked him how they coordinated the voice and film, and how he invented the characters, one of whom saved his life. We’ll also find out who his favorite was and his connection with Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois.
