WNCW Remembers Lesley Gore

Feb 20, 2015

Another 1960s icon is gone with the Feb. 16th passing of Lesley Gore, one of the best-selling artists of the early-to-mid '60s. If you haven't had the opportunity to hear anything other than "It's My Party" and "You Don't Own Me", take time to check out "I Won't Love You Anymore (Sorry)" written by Lesley and brother Michael, "California Nights" her last Top 40 entry, or the why-the-heck-wasn't-this-a-huge-hit "All of My Life". Also, you can check out Lesley on You Tube headlining the live T.A.M.I. show, a who's who of 1960s rock 'n' roll. The esteemed Bear Family label honored Lesley Gore with a 5-cd box set in 1994, and it is a treasure trove of classic girl pop .

In 2005, WNCW morning host Kim Clark interviewed Lesley. They talked about her then-new album "Ever Since" as well as some pivotal moments in her career. She was warm, funny, and absolutely charming.
