The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For August 16

by Marshall Crenshaw
A A
Doc Pomus

On "The Bottomless Pit" tonight at 10, a one-hour salute to one of the greatest of the greats, songwriter Doc Pomus (1925-1991, born Jerome Solon Felder). I had great respect and admiration for Doc and was a friend of his for many years. He wrote and co-wrote some of the best and most beloved songs of all time, and lived a life that was absolutely epic. I encourage you to see, as soon as you can, the outstanding movie "AKA Doc Pomus," directed by Peter Miller and Will Hechter and edited by Amy Linton. If you enjoy books, there's the great biography Lonely Avenue by Alex Halberstadt, which is a real spellbinder.

I hope you'll listen to an hour of—and about—Doc on "The Bottomless Pit" at 10pm EDT, on 90.7FM WFUV and streaming online.

You can also find The Bottomless Pit in the FUV archives for up to two weeks after broadcast.
