Episode 2 – Bruce Channel – Hey Baby!

Bruce Channel

In 1962 it was unusual to have an international hit record.  It was the early stirrings of rock music, and a record named “Hey Baby” rolled out the red carpet for Bruce Channel and Delbert McClinton as the concert headliners in London.  Bruce and Delbert shared a dressing room with their warm up act, a talented cover band getting started: John, Paul, George, and Pete.  The Beatles, a year before adding Ringo. 

Bruce talks about writing and living and creating in Tennessee.  He’s been devoting full days to writing music for more than 55 years and has upwards of 300 songs that he brought to the earth.  He lives in Nashville with his wife, Christine.
