Barry Manilow on WUWM Milwaukee Public Radio!

Barry Manilow On Slowing Down & Playing His Last Show in Milwaukee: There was a time – in the late 1970s and 1980s – when Barry Manilow’s music was ubiquitous. You’d hear it on Top 40 radio, on your TV, in your dentist’s office. Songs like Mandy and Copacabana, and I Write the Songs. Barry Manilow doesn’t chart the same way he once did, but he still has millions of loyal fans, and a new album, called My Dream Duets. Although he’s still producing music, Barry Manilow has decided to slow down, now that he’s [71] years old. He says his current concert tour – which stops at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Tuesday – will be his last. Ahead of that Milwaukee stop, Lake Effect's Bonnie North reached Barry Manilow by phone.

Barry's back with dream duet line-up


Billboard Magazine claims Barry Manilow is officially the number one adult contemporary chart artist of all time, and his catalogue of mega selling albums and hit singles is incredible. “Mandy”, “Copacabana”, “Can’t Smile Without You” and “I Write The Songs” are just a few of them and now has yet another album My Dream Duets. He caught up with Richard Wilkins from his home in Palm Springs. A career as long as Manilow’s is almost unheard of, so what’s the secret to Barry’s success? ”I do things that I believe in, I throw it out there - some of them stick to the wall and some don’t.”

His new album is what some can only dream of, duets with some of the best singers of all time. “It shouldn’t have worked, the idea was so out there. The album is just fantastic.”

My Dream Duets includes original recording of Mama Cass Elliott, Dusty Springfield, John Denver among others with Manilow singing along, bolstering already powerful ballads. Manilow is overwhelmed by how good and seamless the album sounds. “Whitney and Judy and Louis Armstrong, it sounded like we were singing together yesterday” he said.

Richard talks about the disrespect among younger audiences, citing the movement by Rockdale City Council to keep young delinquents out of car parks by playing Barry Manilow and using pink lighting. Barry is undeterred. “I think it’s a good laugh. What they don’t tell you is that the kids like it!”

Barry Manilow’s new album My Dream Duets is out now, available in stores and online.

Whitney Houston, John Denver, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Louis Armstrong and more modern technology has given Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning musician and pop legend Barry Manilow the opportunity to record his ‘dream’ duets with his own musical heroes on his latest album, MY DREAM DUETS. From cherished idols like Judy Garland and Louis Armstrong to contemporary icons like Whitney Houston and John Denver, they have all joined Barry in his 'virtual recording studio.' MY DREAM DUETS is set for release on October 27, 2014. "The songs have all new arrangements and sound as if they were recorded yesterday," said Manilow. "The album is a miracle. It`s been a huge undertaking, musically and technically," he added. Manilow’s joy standing shoulder-to-shoulder next to these musical giants is evident on each track. "Having the opportunity to record these legendary standards with artists whom I admire so much was really a dream come true." In addition to being one of the world`s most successful singers, songwriters, performers and recording artists, Barry is an absolutely brilliant arranger and musician.

The Insider
Barry Manilow on the Insider


Barry Manilow Opens Up About Being Bette Midler's Piano Man: Barry Manilow is now a music legend, but the singer began his impressive career as Bette Midler's piano man until he decided to sing his own songs. "The Insider With Yahoo" co-anchor Louis Aguirre spoke to Barry about that time of his life. "When 'Mandy' hit No. 1, it was kind of like a joke, you know. When I told Bette that I got a record deal, she said, 'Doing what?' I said, 'Singing.'" And while he's not quick to call himself a legend, he does consider Bette to be one. "She's a movie star — that's not who I am — more so than me. I'm a musician, and I'm a very grateful guy."

Week 9 Results (Series 12): It's another nailbiting results show, which kicks off with a comic caper of a cop chase dance routine from our pros. Plus international superstar Barry Manilow performs a classic duet and one of his most popular iconic songs. The judges' scores and public votes have been combined and the two couples with the lowest scores will dance off against each other, before eight couples become seven.

Barry was the special guest and performed his Grammy Award wining hit "Copacabana (At The Copa)" as well as a duet of "What A Wonderful World/What A Wonderful Life" with the late jazz great Louis Armostrong.

Barry Manilow on 5Live with Stephen Nolan


Barry Manilow talked about life before "Mandy" and how it changed after "Mandy" ("I turned into a brat ... it was all fear-based"); being a performer; going back to his family and old friends (when fame hit); not doing it for the money; the success of "Copacabana" (much to Clive Davis' surprise); critics; touring ONE LAST TIME! ("I'm not retiring, I will be making records, I'll probably be doing shows here and there ... I've always got a million ideas ... I am a creator, I come up with great ideas, whether I'm producing myself or somebody else ... I'll always be doing something, but not those long tours."); and of course, MY DREAM DUETS!

Frank Sinatra - The Dream Concert
Barry Manilow hosts "Frank Sinatra - The Dream Concert"

Frank Sinatra - The Dream Concert is a concert that never actually took place - though we wish it had and that we had been there. Compiled from recordings of some of his best live performances with the great musicians of the day, here are his classic songs from Witchcraft to My Way. This is Sinatra at his best - live.

Barry Manilow (no stranger to the world's biggest stages) guides us through this unique experience of artistry in music and sketches-in some of the background to Sinatra on the road.

With the cream of performances from New York, New Jersey, Dallas, Detroit, Japan and of course Las Vegas, the city he made his own and where he performed many hundreds of times at The Sands, Caesars Palace and The Golden Nugget, Sinatra was always accompanied by the finest musicians, including Count Basie and his Orchestra, Woody Herman and his long-time pianist and conductor Bill Miller.

Sinatra performed live around 2000 times not just at home but also around the world in South America, Scandinavia, Europe and even Iran and of course here in the UK with about 100 concerts. Of the thousands of performances he gave, few were captured on record (or on film) so we have made one specially for Radio 2 listeners - and it is longer and better than anything ever previously released. It is a unique performance for all singers and fans to sit back and relish. Simply this is Sinatra at his best - live!
