Richard On The Radio

August 3, 2011 Orchard News No Comments

Last week, our favorite Orchadite and Co-Founder of The Orchard, Richard Gottehrer, hosted a show on East Village Radio. As usual, Richard didn’t disappoint. The show featured tunes from Bo Diddley, The Strangloves, Dum Dum Girls, Dion, George Jones, Spank Rock, and a whole lot more. The show also featured a guest appearance from Ali Boyd who discussed her upcoming documentary The Man is Dead: The Peter Kelley Story about her uncle, Peter Kelley.

You can see photos of the show here, and stream the show in it’s entirety here. IT’S RICHARD ON THE RADIO!

Richard Gottehrer Live On East Village Radio

August 2, 2010 Artist News 1 Comment

This past Monday, July 26th, one of The Orchard’s founders, Richard Gottehrer, was a guest on Andy Rourke’s East Village Radio radio show, Jet Lag. (You may have heard of Andy’s old band….The Smiths.) As a charming storyteller with a very distinct-sounding voice, Richard is right at home on radio – so turn off your phone, ignore your email, and tune in to the archived show here.

Richard discusses the early days of writing hits like “I’m On Fire” for his idol, Jerry Lee Lewis (he even sings a few bars), and he talks about the beginning of his career as a producer and songwriter in the early ’60s with singles such as “My Boyfriend’s Back” and “I Want Candy”. Richard, who also founded Sire Records with Seymour Stein, reminisces on the early days of Sire with bands like Climax Blues Band, The Deviants, and Focus. Focus’ single “Hocus Focus”, which was recently brought to the spotlight once again for Nike’s epic three minute World Cup commercial, opens the show.

Richard addresses how Blue Horizon came to be in the in the mid ’60s, and he talks about producing chart singles for early Fleetwood Mac and Chicken Shack. He touches on discovering Blondie and Richard Hell at CBGB, and helping build the Sire empire with icons like The Ramones, Talking Heads, Madonna, The Pretenders, and of course…The Smiths.

Richard delves into the creation of The Orchard with Scott Cohen, and how early on they recognized that the Internet would open the flood gates for music. Digital was the next movement in the industry. He discusses the resurgence of Blue Horizon, and he plays a couple tracks from Blue Horizon’s recent signing The Black Angels and their upcoming Phosphene Dream….which are aaaaawesome.

This man has done it all, and you can watch these two music legends gush about it after the jump…
