#239 – Billy Vera – Little Richard Box: Directly From My Heart

Musician, actor, TV theme singer, voice-over announcer  – Billy Vera is all of those things.  He scored several R&B hits in the late Sixties, including “Country Girl, City Man,” a duet with Judy Clay.  But, Billy is best known for his surprise #1 hit in 1987, “At This Moment,” which gained popularity from being included on the hit TV show Family Ties.  Yet, he’s also an avid music historian – writing liner notes to countless CDs.

His latest project is penning the notes to the brand new Little Richard box set called Directly From My Heart, from Specialty Records, and Concord Music Group.
