Thanks to Denny Carleton who sent us an interview clip of Richard Tepp from Denny's radio show "The Cleveland Music Connection"

It is about 30 minutes long with Denny, Richard and Cleveland disc jockey Chris Quinn. It was great for us to hear Richard's voice and personality again in this clip...
-----And for those of you who hit this page - a special treat - 3 of the 6 original RYL songs are played in this interview...

If you like the interview, please check out Denny's website and his music at www.dennycarleton.com - theres some real gems in there if you like to hear good music and interviews!


Steven Van Zandt & Pat St. John Audio Pages

Since our Sounds page was getting packed full of clips from these two great RYL friends & DJ's, we decided to give each of them their own Audio Page..

We found an old October 1966 WEAM radio commercial for a Richard and the Young Lions gig in Alexandria, VA !!

Hear the MP3 here!

Little bit of trivia here...
This gig marked the first public appearance of Larry Smith as a Young Lion. If you have the RYL Documentary, one of the Extras on the DVD has Larry telling an amusing "wardrobe malfunction" incident that happened at this gig.

We also found this clip of Jack Armstrong playing "Open Up Your Door" in Cleveland... Listen for an advertisement for Otto's Grotto - a popular Cleveland club frequented by RYL members when they were in town! One specific time they were personal guests of Bob Seger and the Last Heard.

Hear that Mp3 here.


Hear RYL perform the acoustic versions of
their original songs as performed live on WNYU's
