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: Rolling Stones

On the night of Nov. 11, 1964 i introduced the Rolling Stones in concert at the Milwaukee auditorium. After the concert I asked Mick Jagger how he came up with the group’s name.  Wait for it!  Following his answer you’ll hear a clip of what he is referring to.

Bob’s entire WITI-TV interview with the Stones was destroyed when the station moved to a new location and discarded all of their old tapes. The photo is Bill Wyman, the Stones bass player, showing disappointment at not seeing one of his group’s records on the WOKY Top 40 survey. Bob looks like he was expecting to be chastised at any second.
