A ‘Few’ of the Songwriters (where it all starts)


This show is about a ‘few’ of the songwriters in this world that are prolific or are called prolific and we will decide on that point today. Robert considers the songwriters as being the most important ingredient in the music industry. Without the song, nothing moves forward. The musicians have nothing to play and the singers have nothing to sing.

But songwriters are a strange group. We will be discussing:

*Current and past stars such as Hank Williams, Kris Kristofferson, Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Barry Gibb (of the Bee Gees), Willie Nelson, and some controversy of placing Woody Guthrie in this group of talented people;

*Is Woody Guthrie one of the great songwriters, or is he promoted for being on the left;

*Which one of these writers was a Rhodes Scholar;

*Some started at the bottom in life but one was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and a foot in the door.

Enjoy getting to know these artists and give us your thoughts after you listen to the show.

  1. I love the songwriting of Barry Gibb. Some of the songs he’s written not only for the Bee Gees but for other artists too have been out-and-out classics. Heart Stop Beating in Time, which he wrote for Leo Sayer, is a particular favorite of mine.

    Obadiah… I knew of Gibb’s talent, but I was surprised with him being the 6th most prolific writer in modern times.

    @ Obadiah.

    I just listened to that song on UTube. I am sorry but it was really bad.
