The Harry Weinger Interview

Polygram VP Harry Weinger is one of the most important people in our time responsible for "saving the funk."

As an engineer in the Polydor vaults, Harry Weinger has discovered, recovered and remastered classic and legendary funk from James Brown, Parliament, the Ohio Players, Cameo, Kool & the Gang, Con Funk Shun, the
Bar-Kays, Funkadelic, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and countless others.

Some of the greatest funk tracks of our time are
available because of Harry’s efforts, and he is now a
vice president of A&R at Universal Music Enterprises.

Hear the story of how Harry Weinger came to be the
greatest funk archivist alive!
