“Something tells me I’m into something good…” 

You’ll probably recognize that as the hook of a VERY catchy song. It’s from “I’m Into Something Good,” the debut single by Herman’s Hermits, who were at the forefront of the British Invasion when it blew up in 1964.

I had the opportunity to speak with Peter Noone, lead singer of Herman’s Hermits, shortly before the group performs a series of concerts throughout Ohio this month. Those Ohio stops include the Peoples’ Bank Theatre in Marietta on Friday, December 3, the Robins Theatre in Warren on Thursday, December 9, and the Ludlow Garage in Cincinnati on Friday, December 10.

Listen to my interview with Noone, embedded above, wherein we touch on the Hermits’ long history of popularity in the Buckeye State, the impact of radio on the band’s success, and how Noone brings life to some of the greatest hits of the British Invasion.
