Hi Everyone. Barry here.
Since the days of going on those long tours are coming to a close, I thought this might be a good time to remind you all about ManilowTV.
I think many of you know that ever since I started performing I have hit the “record” button; be it audio or video. Recordings of every show I’ve ever done are in a big vault. (Right next to my baby shoes and the Copacabana jacket!).
All of these recordings were meant only for reference and archival purposes. I would look at the shows each night after a concert, make notes, and give them to the staff so that we could tighten the show or change things.
But watching them brings back so many great memories! I know you will enjoy seeing them.
That’s what ManilowTV is all about.
Each month for the past ten years, Marc and I have looked through hundreds of video tapes and DVD’s and picked a performance that we think you would enjoy and have shown it on ManilowTV. So far, there are 120 different shows.
Even though the shows were recorded on one camera and the video and audio is not professional network quality, I think they are very exciting. I think you will too.
We post a new concert every month. These shows bring back such great memories. Big laughs, some tears and such talent! Lady Flash! Big bands, small bands, choirs! England! Germany! Australia! Japan! So many American cities!
You’ll see it all on ManilowTV.
I hope you check it out.
And keep the Kleenex nearby.
This month’s episode is another one of those fantastic BBC music specials. I wish they would do that kind of special on American television. But they still do music specials in England and I’m so grateful that they’ve asked me to perform on...

This one was such fun.

20 years ago, when we were promoting the “Summer of ’78” album, and the 1998 U.K. tour, someone (we know not who) sent us a compilation of all the television interviews I did in the U.K. to start off that tour.
