The Girls of Barry Records

The Barry Records Label was a shadow imprint label from Toronto, Ontario issuing records from other labels in the US and a handful from the UK - and even had a few of it's own original releases. Labels like Barry made it affordable to buy and to find what would have essentially been import records - and it also created a way for other labels to get their records on local radio stations. I grew up listening to 1050 Chum they played tons of girl group stuff and were really dialed into the teen set. I even uploaded a few of their jingles! Here's a good one! and then here is another fun jingle! Today I play girls issued on the Barry Records label, the girls that first got me so interested in girl groups! Listen here at 7pm Eastern, 4 Pacific or 5 Central!
