On August 22, 2011 Jerry Leiber, one half of the legendary songwriting and production team of Leiber & Stoller, passed away in Los Angeles at age 78. Jerry Leiber was the lyricist to Mike Stoller's melodies, and the two created dozens of the most memorable hit songs of the first golden years of the Rock & Roll era. This week Joel Najman's My Place program celebrates Jerry Leiber's life in music with an hour of his most significant and famous songs. Memorable recordings by the Coasters, Drifters, Elvis Presley and others are among those featured.
