Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Sonny and Cher

Sonny and Cher started their career as backup singers for Phil Spector. Many never knew that Sonny could not read music and Cher is dyslectic. She’ll demonstrate that and laugh about it when she records a voice track for me. The last time I saw Sonny and Cher together was in 1974 at Mitchell Field.  They had arrived in Hugh Hefner’s big bunny plane. Cher went directly to a waiting limo and would not talk to anyone. I could see there was friction between the couple and shortly thereafter it was announced that they were divorcing. In these conversations we discuss their music, marriage, and divorce. And all was fine until I asked Cher a rather personal question. All of the ladies loved her answer.
