Six-Pack of Adam Schlesinger, Volume One
On this Six-Pack episode, Christine Carlson-Wolfe from Zilch! A Monkees Podcast, Jon Lamoreaux of The Hustle Podcast, Joe Royland of Sit & Spin with Joe, rejoin Eric Miller of Pods & Sods to honor the great Adam Schlesinger.
Adam was as prolific and creative as they come – he worked in all aspects of music as a singer, a songwriter, a producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He worked in film, in television, and on stage – perhaps best known from his various bands Ivy, Fountains of Wayne, and the supergroup Tinted Windows. He contributed unforgettable music for films like That Thing You Do, Ice Age, Josie & The Pussycats, Something About Mary, and dozens others. He wrote for The Monkees. He even wrote the sweetest imaginable songs for Sesame Street. Tragically, he fell suddenly on April 1st as a result of Coronavirus complications. He was only 52. If ever there were a time to tell someone you love them, this is that time. Adam will be sorely missed. His music and spirit will resonate in our hearts and minds for years to come.
So please join us as shed some tears, share some fears, and celebrate the brilliance of Adam Schlesinger.
