The Pop Shop celebrates its third anniversary with another bubblegum blowout. Also this week: special guest, Rachel Lichtman. Rachel has been immersed in producing and directing a new documentary on songwriting superduo, Boyce & Hart, and their journey from the Brill Building to the Sunset Strip. Rachel talks about her experience delving into Bobby Hart’s personal archive of 8/16mm film, and the premiere screening of The Guys Who Wrote ‘Em at the Chicago International Music and Movies Festival. To learn more about Rachel’s fundraising campaign (music liscensing ain’t cheap), visit the indiegogo site. AND, it’s spring pledge drive this week…….KFAI is encouraging folks to pledge at the Auto Club level. All new and increasing Auto Clubbers will receive matching funds from KFAI’s Booster Club. So much to celebrate! Thanks for supporting Liberty, Izzy and KFAI.
