It’s been a 35 year enjoyable and successful run with The Bobs, thousands of live shows, hundreds of original songs, and some 16 albums recorded. My thanks and appreciation to all the members of the various iterations of the group: Gunnar, Matthew, Janie, Joe, Lori, Amy, Dan and Angie. My enormous thanks also to all the folks who have come to our concerts and purchased our recorded music.
It all started when Western Onion went bust, leaving all singing telegram deliverers broke and unemployed. Thus began the Great San Francisco Singing Telegram Depression of 1981. Gunnar Madsen and Matthew Stull, two of the newly unemployed, placed a free 25-words-or-less ad in the classifieds for a bass singer. They got one call–from bass singer, songwriter and recording engineer Richard Greene. After six months of rehearsal, the trio debuted at an open mike in a Cuban restaurant. They sang “Psycho Killer,” “A White Sport Coat” and a few others. The audience loved them. The Bobs were born.
