Jimmy Webb & Glen Campbell

Diary of a Passionate Podcaster

The close friendship between master songwriter Jimmy Webb and legendary artist Glen Campbell lasted for decades.  My favorite song from these two is the 1969 masterpiece “Witchita Lineman."  I had the good fortune to hang out with Jimmy Webb one afternoon in 2008 and asked him about the song and his writing process.  Jimmy is a fascinating voice of American popular music and his work with Campbell will always remain as the standard bearer of contemporary Americana.
