This week we look at the incredible story of Bert Berns, a songwriting genius who was exceptionally prolific in the 1960's. He's worked with the Isley Brothers (who we discussed last week, check it out if you haven't already), The Beatles, Jimmy Page, Van Morrison, and dozens of others. 

Playlists with all the songs from this week's episode can be found on Apple Music and Spotify under 'Sample Excavator Episode 1.4'
