Our career-spanning interview with Richard Barone is now posted for listening and downloading on our PodOMatic podcast page.
Comprising two separate talks, our latest program goes the extra mile to bring Richard’s fans up to the minute with his latest goings-on. The very first Bongos platter, Drums Along the Hudson, was recently released 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.
This interview originally aired on Pure Pop Radio on February 25, 2014. We hope you enjoy the show.
