An Interview with Clifford Curry

On Sunday nights I had the honor of hosting a six hour "Original Beach Party" from 105.7 WGQR Oldies and Beach in Elizabethtown NC. One of my greatest joys was interviewing the artists that called in each week. From 2003-2005 ... relive the memories with Original Beach Party and Pat Gwinn At The Beach!

Pat Gwinn: "Clifford, how do we take beach music into the international radio air play, outside the normal areas of the Southeast US?"

Clifford Curry: "Pat I am trying to get a handle on that myself. From my point of view I want to see the people in charge of promoting beach music ... would promote it a little bit better, as a unit. Pushing it nationwide instead of being ... kind of being selfish by letting it become self contained there in the one area. My dreams and ambitions were to become an international recording artist and singer and it is still my hope and dreams. Don't get me wrong I am not knocking where I have been for the past few years in beach music it is confined to this area and it has really been good to me. I appreciate that. Without beach music, I guess, and the DJs like you Pat and the record stores and clubs that occasionally play my music... I don't guess it would have ever happened for me. I just wish it would get a little more nationwide attention."

Pat: "Clifford, in a recent interview with General Johnson, claimed the music was in the national spotlight at one time, referring to Motown. Do you agree with that assessment? Was that the same sound?"

Clifford: "Certain songs, I don't think that all of it was... but certain songs were. You can pick a few of them out there and they were considered beach music songs. But not everything. I don't think that Barry Gordy and them, at that time, or in the beach music thing. Not just cutting beach music songs, you know? Look at the nationwide appeal with different artist they had and different kinds of songs they were putting out. Certain songs really did belong in the beach music notoriety but Motown did not get here yet for that kind of thing. It just happened that way. General might be right. I think he learned from them, Motown, when he went back up there with Holland-Dozier- Holland with the Invictus, you know he left from down here. I mean look at his first songs, Everyday's Tuesday, Give Me Just A Little More Time. All them were shag songs".

Pat: "He, Johnson, Learned a lot from those guys and brought it back here to the Carolinas."

Clifford: "That's right. That's exactly right and I give him credit for that!"

Pat: "Your health scare with cancer is behind you for now"

Clifford: "Yes, I have really been blessed. The check up at the doctor says I'm all clear and I'm doing great Pat and I'm thankful for friends like you Pat and all the fans in the Southeast. God Bless You all."
