About the Book
Don Kirshner, the Man with the Golden Ear (Hal Leonard Books): In 1958, long before he created and hosted Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, the most dynamic rock-and-roll series in television history, before he developed the Monkees and created the Archies, Don Kirshner was a 23-year-old kid with just a dream in his pocket. Five years later he was the prince of pop music. He did it by building Aldon Music, a song publishing firm, from scratch. This is about how he did it.   Amazon    BarnesandNoble   IndieBound

Rich Podolsky, an established reporter and writer since the 1970s, has been a staff writer for CBS, and has written for TV Guide, ESPN, the Philadelphia Daily News, the Palm Beach Post, and the Wilmington News Journal. His passion for the music of the '60s led him to Don Kirshner and the amazing teenage songwriters he discovered.
