Jerome “Jerry” Leiber and Mike Stoller were American songwriting and record producing partners. Stoller was the composer and Leiber the lyricist.
Leiber and Stoller’s initial successes were as the writers of such crossover hit songs as “Hound Dog” and “Kansas City”. Later in the 1950s, particularly through their work with The Coasters, they created a string of ground-breaking hits that are some of the most entertaining in rock and roll, by using the humorous vernacular of the teenagers sung in a style that was openly theatrical rather than personal, songs that include “Young Blood”, “Searchin'”, and “Yakety Yak”. They were the first to surround black music with elaborate production values, enhancing its emotional power with The Drifters in “There Goes My Baby”, and influencing Phil Spector, who studied their productions while playing guitar on their sessions.
Leiber and Stoller wrote hits for Elvis Presley including “Love Me”, “Jailhouse Rock”, “Loving You”, “Don’t”, and “King Creole”. They also collaborated with other writers on such songs as “On Broadway”, written with Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil; “Stand By Me”, written with Ben E. King; “Young Blood”, written with Doc Pomus; and “Spanish Harlem”, co-written by Leiber and Phil Spector. In 1964, they launched Red Bird Records with George Goldner and, focusing on the “girl group” sound, released some of the greatest classics of the Brill Building period.
In all, Leiber and Stoller wrote or co-wrote In all over 70 chart hits. They were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1985 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

Book Reviews – RockStar Weekly
- Written by Dan Savoie
Anyone over the age of 30 should recognize the name Terry David Mulligan as a radio personality somewhere in the country. He’s been around the block in such places as Toronto, Regina, Red Deer and Vancouver; and most currently on CKUA in Alberta as the host of his long-running program Mulligan’s Stew. If that doesn’t ring a bell, then maybe you’ll remember his friendly face as the host (or VJ) of the national television programs Good Rockin’ Tonite and MuchWest. Either way, Terry has been the one guiding our musical interests since the 60s through his celebrity interviews and love of rock and roll, whether we realized it or not.
In his biography Mulligan’s Stew – My Life So Far, Terry takes us down memory lane during the dawn of a new and exciting musical form called rock and roll. His original calling as a Mountie in Red Deer was for naught as his ears and soul were drawn to the glamour and quick fame of radio and the new music that he wanted to share with his family, friends and listeners.
I think everyone who has seen him has had a Mulligan Moment – one of those unforgettable moments when an interview captured our attention and stayed with us through the years. My Mulligan Moment came when Terry was hosting Good Rockin’ Tonite in the 80s and his guest for the show was KISS leader Paul Stanley, who offered his sunglasses to a viewer during the interview. I never did get the glasses, but it was a moment this young KISS fan remembers well.
Mulligan’s Stew is a well written and compelling read that sheds some insight not only on Terry’s life, but also early glimpses of Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Bryan Adams and The Guess Who. The chatty writing style gives the book a bit of a personal feel and at times can feel like you’re there having a coffee hearing all these great brushes with the famous.
One of the highlights of the book happens in Vancouver in the late 60s at the height of the Summer of Love, which includes endless music festivals highlighted by an interview with Jimi Hendrix and shopping on Davie Street with Jim Morrison, who was looking for early Hemingway books and Beatle boots. Vancouver would never been the same, especially once Hendrix, Morrison and Joplin passed away within months of each other.
It’s also a good account of some of Canada’s early FM radio moments as stations learned to develop their own style in a new and quickly evolving medium. And like any good DJ in Canada, he’s seen it all and hit the airwaves across the country on several stations during his career.
Mulligan’s Stew is a must have for Canadian music fans. The accounts of early Guess Who and Bryan Adams are worth the cover price alone – especially the Guess Who’s failed attempt at a 1967 tour beginning in London.
Not as personal and in depth as other biographies, Terry mostly skips discussing his early personal life, and instead jumps right into the Mountie years and the music. There are some personal and intimate moments scattered throughout, but this book is mostly about the public side of the DJ, VJ and actor that has been a part of our lives for about 50 years.
Colin James talks wines
Edible Canada! Is it a floor wax or a shampoo? A website or one of the hottest restaurants on the West Coast?
Chef Wendy Boys explains EVERYTHING.
Whatever happened to 5 Star Dining? A chat between Chefs Dale McKay and
And 5 Okanagan wineries pour at Vancouver Urban Winery.
Edible Canada has quite a history. Eric Pateman started the concept over 5 years ago as a website meant to showcase culinary artisans in BC and Western Canada.
Then it became a store where you could buy the jams and honey and cheeses etc.
Now it has become one of the go to food destinations in Vancouver right across the street from Granville Island Market.
Not only is there a new retail store, the bistro is simply beautiful.
There are over 80 seats inside and another 100 on the patio. There’s a take-out window, Mile long bar and very open kitchen, as well as the demonstration kitchen in the glassed-in private room.
Owner Eric Pateman has gathered a great collection of local ingredients and grown in BC wines, guided by the devious wine mind of Treve Ring.
If you have friends coming into town and want to show off our best or if you are the actual visitor and want to taste the best of the best in BC food or wine, then this is the place for you.
Ps..its apparently the only place in BC you can get Nichol Organic Pinot Gris and its ON TAP. As a matter of fact, there’s a LOT of taps there.
We attended a very special showcase dinner at The Bistro and the guest chef was Chef Wendy Boys from Cocolico.
Colin James was a guest on my Mulligan Stew show on CKUA Radio this past Saturday. We talked about his just released CD called “Fifteen”
BUT, Colin has always talked wine with me because he knows what he’s talking about.
Here’s a guy who’s biked through Tuscany with Jim Cuddy and the Bentalls.
Its a quick chat but I thought you’d like to listen in.
Two chefs – Two opinions – Two friends
Top Chef Canada Winner Dale MacKay is the inaugural winner in the new Georgia Straight Golden Plates awards category. Second place winner was Chef Rob Feenie and third place winner was David Hawksworth. Dale’s two new passions are ensemble and eTap.
Dale also won Best new Casual and Best BC Beer selection.
Sitting in is our mutual friend Chef Ned Bell from Yew at The Four Seasons Vancouver.
I was prepared to talk about anything and everything but two subjects took over the chat.
One was “whatever happened to fine dining?” and Dale McKay talks about a mentoring program in Vancouver’s East end that includes gang members looking for a way back into society – through the culinary door.
Part two of this week’s show features a visit to Vancouver Urban Winery… where the concept of wines on tap – has a real strong home.
Pouring at this event were 5 of BC’s best
- Senka and Bob Tennant
Senka Tennant – Iconic winemaker, who helped to create Note Bene and Alibi for Black Hills in the South Okanagan. She and her husband Bob walked away from the very high profile job and settled into a lifestyle more to their liking on the Naramata Bench. Of course, she found time to plant vines and create a new wine, it’s what she does so well. Senka poured their Albarino and Verdejo blend, a wine called Fandango and from purchased Roussanne and Viognier grapes a wine called Figaro.
It was so good to talk to her again.
Kim Pullen – principal owner of Church and State on how it all came to be. http://churchandstatewines.com/
Okanagan Crush Pad – Kate Crothers pours all the latest releases. http://www.okanagancrushpad.com/
A brand new winery Niche Wine Company shows off its small batch releases. James and Joanna Schlosser is the co-owner (with Joanna) and the winemaker. Located above Kelowna.
And Harry McWatters, the legend of BC Wine, takes time to pour his two wines – Time and McWatters.
I’m hoping some of you will find your next favourite wine from listening to the chat.
