This week Joel Najman's My Place program presents a second hour of songs co-written by Jerry Leiber, who passed away in August 2011 at age 78. As one half of the songwriting and production team of Leiber & Stoller, Jerry helped transform 1950's rhythm & blues into teenage rock & roll, and create some of the most memorable music of the rock era's first golden years. Famous hit recordings by the Drifters, Coasters, Elvis Presley and others are among the selections presented.
