@Marc15: Have you ever seen a picture of Don Kirshner?
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 10:21pm Chop Scott:

@Gaylord what about Kirshner's son?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:24pm Gaylord Fields:

@Chop Scott: He's a fine producer in his own right and probably contains 100% human DNA.
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:25pm looking stuff up:

In 1961 I [Lee Irwin] produced "The Idol," a documentary about teen idol Bobby Vee that became part of Desilu Sales' "Windows on the World" syndicated series. Bobby himself was still a teenager himself at the time, just 18, but had already recorded a string of hit records and albums, most of them written by the husband-and-wife team of Carole King and Gerry Goffin. They included "Take Good Care of My Baby," "Run to Him," and "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes." Here [YT] is the closing five minutes of the documentary, which includes the title song, written by King and Goffin. IT ["The Idol"] WAS NEVER RELEASED ON RECORD.

She's great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ambitious choice.

Go Amanda! I like this.

How alone does Carole King stand in successfully spanning eras as a Writer?
Avatar    Thu. 2/9/17 10:31pm Hoboken Jack:

My sister and I had a semi flexi disc of "Pleasant Valley Sunday" cut out from the back of a... Super Sugar Crisp box i believe?
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:32pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

That could have been a line in the song
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:33pm Gaylord Fields:

@Revolution Rabbit Nov63: If you were to say that Carole King stands along as a songwriter without any further qualifiers whatsoever, I wouldn't argue with that assessment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:33pm Gaylord Fields:

*stands alone
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:33pm Flakes:

"Monkee Mike Nesmith supposedly made Carole King cry when he made fun of her early songs to her face."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...as she stands along...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:35pm Gaylord Fields:

@Flakes: You mean crappy crap song crap like "Will You Love Me Tomorrow"? Methinks Papa Nez's wool hat dye may have seeped into his brain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:36pm Tommy in Neversink:

Carole should have made fun of white out as retaliation
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/9/17 10:36pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Hoboken Jack - I remember flexi discs from cereal boxes from way back. I don't recall what song or songs we had or what cereal brand had them, though.
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 10:37pm Chop Scott:

Gaylord please don't disparage Nesmith, we could have conflict ahead.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Chop Scott: If Mike said that about Carole King's songwriting, then he's got a bigger problem than you or I will ever have.
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:39pm Marc15:

@Gaylord I see your point
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 10:42pm Joe B:

Nez probably did deserve a co-writing credit for coming up with the guitar riff for Pleasant Valley Sunday. important part of the record
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/9/17 10:42pm melinda:

I like Carole singing Pleasant Valley Sunday.
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 10:43pm Amanda:

I just got here, what did I miss?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:43pm Gaylord Fields:

@Amanda: Nothing of interest to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/9/17 10:44pm Debbie D.:

Great set! Thanks, Ira!!
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 10:45pm Amanda:

"I Don't Think You Know Me" might be my favorite Carole King song that the Monkees recorded but didn't release.
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:45pm Flakes:

Mike Nesmith sang this one too
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:46pm Jordan in Eugene:

Great show Ira! Thanks so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:47pm Gaylord Fields:

Ira, thanks for doing the radio show that I've been waiting for a less auspicious milestone to do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:47pm Tommy in Neversink:

Richard Groove Holmes needs a whole show
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 10:51pm Joe B:

Flakes re I don't think you know me - All 4 Monkees sang versions! The Jones one has yet to surface but to was recorded. I prefer the Peter version, and his performance of it at the Beacon Theater Monkees show in 2011 remains an all-time concert highlight for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Someone said - ? - that 'Goin' Back' was one of the turning points between the bYRdS & Crosby? (...more mess...)
Avatar    Thu. 2/9/17 10:53pm Hoboken Jack:

For what it's worth, here's a Nesmith quote to the Asbury Park Press in 2014:
"At the time, Carole King asked if I would like to write with her, but I was so intimidated by the idea of a pop song, and so naive as to the process, I turned down that opportunity. I loved CK's work then, and still do, but it couldn't have been any other way. I was clueless."
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:53pm Slaboch:

Perfect soundtrack for driving home through Harbor Country!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:53pm Gaylord Fields:

Ira, this is all fake fighting on my part — truth be told, I can't abide either the Monkees or Carole King.
  Thu. 2/9/17 10:57pm Ira:

It's fake chastising from me too. Personally, WFMU doesn't do all that much for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 10:58pm Tommy in Neversink:

Hoboken Jack...that's interesting because "Different Dum " is pop song perfection
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/9/17 11:00pm Tommy in Neversink:

....You just can't not like it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/9/17 11:00pm melinda:

Fake scuffles are fun.
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 11:00pm Amanda:

Goffin & King cowrote "Sweet Young Thing" with Nez fwiw.

Ira, loving the show on this chilly night!
  Thu. 2/9/17 11:01pm looking stuff up:

Hey Amanda: Track 12 on "The Best of Dean Martin" was written by Ross Bagdasarian ("Hey Brother, Pour the Wine")
Avatar Thu. 2/9/17 11:06pm Amanda:

Whoa! Thanks for the tip, I wasn't aware of that! This is also the song that Marge sings after getting drunk in "There's No Disgrace Like Home," Simpsons season 1.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 2/9/17 11:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I like The Monkee's playing "Last Train to Clarksville" and watching them chase each other around on their TV show. So there!
