I don’t typically blog about the individual episodes of my songwriting podcast Sodajerker On Songwriting. However, I wanted to mention that episode 12 of the show features an interview with Mike Stoller of the legendary songwriting team Leiber and Stoller, the pair behind songs like ‘Hound Dog’, ‘Jailhouse Rock’, ‘Stand by Me’ and ‘Yakety Yak’.
Sadly, Jerry Leiber passed away last year, but we were incredibly fortunate to have Mike on the show for an hour to talk about their songwriting process and the stories behind their greatest songs.
Hope you enjoy it. If you haven’t already, you can subscribe in iTunes to get future episodes automatically.
