Songs of Goffin & King

Songs of Goffin & King

A couple of months ago we featured about 20 minutes on a songwriter special featuring the music of the husband and wife songwriting team of Gerry Goffin and Carole King. We’ll take a bit more time in this week’s show sharing their tunes with you.  From the Brill Building onwards, their songs easily defined the soundtrack for a generation of young Americans of the 1960s. Light-hearted love songs, songs of reflection, and dreamlike hooks were the order: Carole the tunes and Gerry the lyrics. Join Dave Stroud in a look back featuring the music of The Cookies, Earl Jean, Lou Rawls Skeeter Davis, and many more on a Friday evening on Sonoma County Community Radio.
