BARRY MCGUIRE, SINGER OF THE CLASSIC "EVE OF DESTRUCTION": KOZVERSATIONS (08/19/16)
August 28, 2016•40 min
Barry McGuire hit the top of the charts in 1965 with a song called "Eve of Destruction," whose stark lyrics by the brilliant singer-songwriter P.F. Sloan mourned the war and environmental destruction going on around the planet even then. The story of how it was recorded, how it hit the airwaves, the backlash against the song by politicians and DJs, and how Barry never managed to hit the charts again yet has maintained 50 years of touring off that one song is one of the most fascinating Kozversations ever. If you love a good story, a good song, and/or rock n roll history this one is for you!
