Jimmy Webb

From South Carolina ETV Radio | Part of the Song Travels with Michael Feinstein News Friendly Version series | 53:00

One of the most prominent songwriters of his era, Jimmy Webb has written hits for artists including Glen Campbell, Linda Ronstadt, and the Fifth Dimension. Webb has earned multiple Grammy Awards, membership in the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Academy of Songwriters. In this session Webb presents some of his most memorable songs including “Galveston” and “MacArthur Park.”

Jimmywebbprx_small Song Travels is a one-hour series distributed by NPR and hosted by the renowned "Ambassador of the Great American Songbook," Michael Feinstein. As host and artistic director, Feinstein uncovers the intimate journey singers and songs take with one another, each changing the other through the course of a lifetime.  For Feinstein, American music is really a travelogue, with art that exists only because it has traveled through artists' lives, generations, and passions: 

"In this series, we talk about songs: How important they are in our lives, how they've changed our lives and how sometimes they make life worth living." 
-Michael Feinstein 

Feinstein welcomes a new guest each week to explore the genre of American Popular Song, examining how these great songs have evolved through the years, changing with each interpretation and artist.

Each program features an even mix of ½ insightful conversation to ½ in-studio or recorded musical performances of guests and Feinstein.
