Songwriter Jimmy Webb Celebrates 66th Birthday
If you like Glen Campbell, chances are you like Jimmy Webb’s music. Many of Glen’s hits were written by Webb including “By The Time I Get To Phoenix”, “Galveston” and many more. Today, Jimmy Webb celebrates his 66th birthday, and we celebrate with his music on the “Country Classic Double” at 11:30 a.m., kicking it off with “Wichita Lineman”, a number one Webb song in 1968 recorded by Glen Campbell.
Here’s a vintage video of Glen Campbell performing “Witchita Lineman” on his 1960s CBS TV Show “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour”.
