Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Paul Revere and the Raiders

Can you guess which the biggest hit record was for Paul Revere and the Raiders? Was it “Kicks,” “Just Like Me,” or “Hungry?” Paul surprised me with his answer. He also explained the story behind the song, which had been a flop for another artist. It went to number one, sold more than a million copies and stayed on the charts for 22 weeks. Paul also talks about the group’s history and he revealed the name of his partner in the night club they owned in Reno.
