FWIW: Little Known Barker TPIR Factoid.
« on: May 16, 2024, 02:05:56 PM »
As I do a weekly oldies show on our local Community Radio station, I try to pull out some obscure facts about the artists I play and relay them to the listeners.

Recently, I stumbled on a factoid about former TPIR staffer Sherrell Paris, who worked closely with Bob during much of the Barker era.   I never made the connection that she was a hit-maker in the early 60s!

I believe they showed her briefly on a couple of occasions for game-related reasons, but I don't ever recall Bob ever mentioning her recording career.

Anyhoo, if you wish to learn more about Sherrell's pre-Price career,...
