Visual Radio presents Gary DeCarlo of the group STEAM to talk about his music and career. When fans in sports stadiums start singing "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye...". people think of the voice on the hit recording...that voice is Gary DeCarlo who, most recently, is on a PBS special entitled 60's Pop, Rock & Soul along with previous Visual Radio guests Peter Noone of Herman Hermits, Marty Balin of Jefferson Starship, Mitch Ryder of Detroit, Gary Lewis of The Playboys and Dick Peterson of The Kingsmen.
Joe Tortelli, VR co-host who has contributed to the national Goldmine Magazine - and who recently interviewed Ken Evans of The Fifth Estate, may be co-hosting the show airing this Thursday night at 8 PM on WinCAM - Winchester Community Access & Media. You can tune in at http://www.wincam.org immediately following the 7 PM Wonderful Show featuring Joe LaRocca and Anthony Gaimari.
We'll chat with DeCarlo about "The Demo That Got The Deal" for Steam, how the appearance on the PBS special came together (and how the performance on PBS is a mirror image of the hit single!), and other music recorded by the singer whose song is in millions and millions of homes.
Our film review at 8:45 PM will be LOVE LAUGHS AT ANDY HARDY with noted author and co-host Frank Dello Stritto. This Mickey Rooney film from 1946 was directed by Willis Goldbeck
