A Real Girl

Hosted by

Moulty played in a 60s garage group called The Barbarians. He was notable for the fact that he played drums despite having a hook for a left hand. One of the band's best known songs was named for Moulty himself. In the song, he speaks about wanting to find his one true love, "a girl, A REAL girl." Over 40 years later a reporter tries to find out whether Moulty's dream ever came true.
