Listen in as Mike Stoller, one-half of the legendary songwriting team of Leiber and Stoller, discusses his colorful life and celebrated career. Over the course of a sixty-one year partnership, Leiber and Stoller created enduring classics in a variety of genres including rhythm & blues, pop, country, jazz, cabaret, and most notably, rock and roll. Their many hits include Hound Dog (Elvis Presley) and Is That All There Is? (Peggy Lee) while their 1995 Broadway production, Smokey Joes Caf: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller, was nominated for seven Tony Awards and still holds the record as the longest-running musical revue in Broadway history.
Stoller will be interviewed by Steve Barri, composer, lyricist, and music industry executive who signed Steely Dan, Jimmy Buffet, and Three Dog Night. A book signing of Stollers new book, Hound Dog: The Leiber and Stoller Autobiography, follows the program.
