Episode Description

Do the songs of today sound awfully similar to songs of yesteryear? It might not be a coincidence! Tim English is a recognized authority on the topic of musical plagiarism in pop music. He has appeared on hundreds of radio programs in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada. He is the winner of Independent Publisher’s“Bronze Medal” for one of the best books of the year. He is also the author of Popology: The Music of the Era in the Lives of Four Icons of the 1960s which examines the role of music in the lives of John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and Thomas Merton. Tim will also bring along some songs to see if you can tell which ones have been "borrowed" from the other. Then, Tony-nominated actress and former pop star Orfeh returns to the show to share her own story about having one of her songs "borrowed" without her permission. She'll share the enraging story of how the person who lifted the song walked away scott-free .
