On Radio 4

The cold December day,outside,was forgotten as I listened to Jimmy Webb on Mastertapes this afternoon....a very pleasant way to spend an hour.

It's claimed ( a member of the audience said) that recently Bob Dylan said that Wichita Lineman could be the best song ever written. It would certainly be up there with records I would choose to take with me to my desert island...

The legendary JIMMY WEBB talks to John Wilson about a career of song-writing that began in High School and went on to include platinum selling hits for Donna Summer, Frank Sinatra, R.E.M., Barbara Streisandand, of course, Glen Campbell.

The youngest person ever to have been inducted into the Songwriters' Hall of Fame and the only artist to have won Grammy Awards in music, lyrics and orchestration, Jimmy Webb's compositions include 'MacArthur Park', 'Wichita Lineman', 'Up, Up And Away', 'Galvaston' and the third most performed song in the fifty years between 1940 & 1990 - 'By The Time I Get To Phoenix'.

You know how to hurt a bloke, Becky...

Had a ticket to see this, but by the time I got to Maida Vale, the place was full and they were turning people away. I ended up going on a pilgrimage to Abbey Road, so not an entirely wasted journey.

Oops,sorry Raver.. ...that must have been a sickener.

At least you had the Abbey Road experience....one day, hopefully, so will I. Cool
