episode 1: Richard Barone

Richard Barone, the bongos interviewRichard Barone began his long career in the music industry while in Florida at age sixteen when a chance meeting with Tiny Tim led to his first job producing a major act.  He eventually made his way to Hoboken, New Jersey where he convinced the owner of Maxwell’s Pub to allow his newly formed band the Bongos to be the first act ever to perform there.  Soon, the Bongos were discovered in Hoboken and signed to a record label which led to the recording of their first album and first international tour.  Since that moment Richard’s career has taken many fascinating turns on both major and independent labels allowing him to work with many legends of the music world as songwriter, performer, record producer and concert promoter.
