B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU-FM, 90.5/ SAT., 29 AUG. 09

Aside from Carol King, Ellie Greenwich was one the great songwriters from 1960's hit factory, known as The Brill Building (located in midtown Manhattan). Working with then-husband, Jeff Barry, Greenwich co-wrote a staggering slew of hits for artists such as the Ronettes, the Crystals, Ike & Tina Turner and the Shangri-La's. Pictured here recording with "Les Girls," left to right, Jean Thomas, Greenwich and Mikie Harris in late 1967.
