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: Rick Nelson

Rick Nelson was the son of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. They had a hit radio show in the 1940s and a popular TV show “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” from 1952 to 1966. In 1957, while Rick was on the TV show he recorded his first single for Imperial Records, “Be Bop Baby,” which sold more than a million copies. I mentioned the song to him during his appearance at the Playboy Club in Lake Geneva and we discussed his show biz career.
