WDHA Morning Jolt

Weekdays 6am - 10am

You’re the founding member of one of rock’s biggest bands of the 1980’s. You’ve written and sung on a bunch of their hit songs.

You decide to record a solo album and grab some of the best musicians you can find.

And then someone buys the record label you’re on and the album goes unreleased for nearly 30 years.

That’s what happened to .38 Special founding member Don Barnes whose Ride the Storm solo album has finally seen the light of day…28 years after it was recorded.

Don called into the WDHA Morning Jolt and spoke with Jim Monaghan about the record, the process it took to finally get it out, and .38 Sepcial’s legacy.

.38 Special will be at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown on October 12.
