From: Benld, IL
Works at: U.S. Post Office in Litchfield, IL
Nominated by: His stepson, Jason Cooper
Barry has been listening to KSHE since the early days in the late 60s!
Barry’s stepson, Jason, says Barry always has KSHE on in the car, on the deck, working in the yard, and everywhere else. Barry got Jason loving music just by listening to KSHE!
Jason remembers jamming out to KSHE in the car with Barry, and going to multiple Journey, Sammy Hagar, John Mellencamp, and REO concerts together.
Jason says his stepfather, Barry, is awesome and one of the best ever. Barry has been the father that he never had to be, and he does it with open arms. Jason says he wouldn’t be where he is now without Barry’s guidance and assistance!
KSHE songs that get Barry through the day:
John Mellencamp – Small Town; Sammy Hagar – Heavy Metal – Red; The Who – Baba O’Riley; Todd Rundgren – Bang The Drum All Day; Head East – Love Me Tonight; Bob Seger – Her Strut; Boston – More Than A Feeling
