It's a sad day for the music world with the news of the death of Jerry Leiber, half of the legendary Leiber and Stoller songwriting team, with his partner, Mike Stoller. I invite you to read the details below.  In tribute to Jerry Leiber, I am pleased to play one of their many hit songs: Hound Dog performed by Elvis Presley. It's our Song of the Week. Enjoy!

Voice Your Choice features Herman's Hermits from Manchester, England, with two of their many hit records: Silhouettes and I'm Into Something Good. Which song would you like to hear? Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page. We'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
