The fourth of IS programmes
Leiber and Stoller (Part 1 of 2) Introduced by Andy Peebles
JERRY LEIBER and MIKE STOLLER were the first successful independent record producers in the history of the record business. Originally songwriters. they became record producers and created a new order by writing for record rather than live performance.
Writing originally for black performers and audiences, they developed street credible ' lyrics long before anyone ever thought of the description, and came up with seven hit songs for Elvis Presley at his peak Their " novelette " productions for the Coasters were crazy reflections of everyday life in America. contrasting with the â¢ sweet-soul â¢ style of their records for the Drifters.
Today they enjoy legendary status in the rock world although continuing to write and produce only spasmodically.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
