Part two or our two-part salute to Neil Diamond picks up where part 1 left off. We'll chronicle all the rest of his hit singles, along with the original versions by other artists who inspired him. Plus, later hit recordings of Neil Diamond originals by other singers – as well as songs he composed for various artists, but didn’t record himself.
In this episode, we’ll highlight Neil Diamond’s special connections with famed actors Paul Newman and Clint Eastwood, as well as superstar singers Glen Campbell, Barbra Streisand, Brian Wilson, Dolly Parton, and Waylon Jennings, among many others.
Our resident “Rare & Scratchy Rock & Roll” Rockologist Ken Deutsch will put Neil Diamond’s accomplishments into the context of the times. And Radio Dave will have more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record.
