Ray Charles Interviewed By KTLA (2002)


In 2002 KTLA‘s Morning News sent actress-reporter-bimbo Mindy Burbano to RPM to interview Brother Ray – who was surprisingly patient with her.
Here’s a 20-minute edit, offering nothing new, except for a few words on the Ray Charles Doll, and on Bally’s Ray Charles slot machines, plus Ray’s – not necessarily entirely true – claim that America The Beautiful only sold something like 30,000 records when it was first released, but over 2,000,000 copies thirty years later [i.e. after 9/11, BS], and a few Genius piano chords at the end.
