The Songs Of Carole King - Revisited

05/12/12 8:00PM By Joel Najman

Singer and songwriter Carole King recently published her long-awaited memoir titled "Carole King - A Natural Woman" coinciding with the surprise release of a CD containing a baker's dozen of her original demonstration recordings of some of her most famous pop music compositions.

Carole King was recently featured on NPR on Terry Gross' Fresh Air program, and this week Joel Najman's My Place program celebrates the occasion with an hour of songs written or co-written by Carole King as recorded by the artists that first released them commercially.
