The Bongos in front of Maxwell’s in Hoboken, New Jersey

We’ve got a wonderful treat for you tomorrow night: Richard Barone joins us on Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation for a wide-ranging chat about his musical life with the Bongos and as a solo recording artist and performer.

Just released this past week on February 18 is a 27-track reissue of the very first Bongos platter, Drums Along the Hudson, and it’s on Jem Recordings, where it belongs. Richard talks extensively about this welcome release, his growing up days as a young deejay and musician, his upcoming tribute (put together with Alejandro Escovedo) to Lou Reed at this year’s South by Southwest festival, and his solo career, among other important topics. He also talks about his feelings toward his friend and mentor, Lou Reed, and another good friend and mentor, Pete Seeger. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Richard Barone, including choice cuts from the Bongos and Richard’s solo years.

Listen to this historic conversation with Richard Barone tomorrow night, February 25, at 8 pm ET. The show repeats on Thursday, February 27, at 8 pm ET. It’s all for you on your original 24-hour-a-day home for the greatest melodic pop music in the universe–Pure Pop Radio.
