Things My Mom Taught Me – Don Kirshner

This is my favorite interview I have ever done. I had the pleasure of interviewing Don for my book, “Moms rate the CEO’s of Life”.
Don Kirshner was king from the 50’s to the 70’s. He was called “The Man With The Golden Ear” by Time magazine. He discovered Carol King, Neil Sadaka, Tony Orlando, Monkee’s and many more.
He started “Don Kirshner Rock Concerts” and many more avenues for rock music.
If you ever listened to music in the 50’s through the 80″s this is the one show you need to listen to. I had the honor to be the last person to interview Don before he died, so this interview is close to my heart. I know if you listen you realize who awesome this show is but also what he gave to music.
