This week, hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot pay tribute to the late Cynthia Weil, one half of the songwriting duo Mann & Weil, famous for writing tracks like “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” and “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling.” Jim and Greg revisit their 2011 conversation. The hosts also talk to Ryan Tedder of One Republic about writing songs for himself, Beyoncé, Adele and more. Plus, a review of the new album from rapper Killer Mike.
