In early '16, I recorded an interview at home with the legendary flute, sax and live bassist Bob Messenger for a tentative project I was working on. As this was not originally intended to be aired on radio or published as a podcast, the interview was not taped in a studio. Bob has not recorded any interviews to either of our knowledge since Karen's passing in '83, and whatever earlier interview(s) to which he may have contributed with the Carpenters would be considered extremely rare. I created this in a video timeline as I normally did with my radio show archive interviews for The Download (originally aired 2013-2014), and peppered in some occasional rare photographs that were mostly provided, courtesy of Bob and Joan Messenger. Enjoy!
