Pure Pop Radio: In Conversation Podcasts: Peggy March (Airdate: September 6, 2017)

By Alan Haber – Pure Pop Radio alan 5 small

peggy march ace album coverWould it be proper to call this hour-long In Conversation episode a very special one? Yes, it would. I was pleased and privileged to speak with Peggy March, formerly known as Little Peggy March, who took me on a tour through her long running career that began back in 1963 with her hit recording of “I Will Follow Him,” a decades-old staple of oldies radio.

During this fascinating show, full of great stories and even greater music, we spoke about “I Will Follow Him” and the top-flight, recently-released compilation on Ace Records of Peggy’s recordings, If You Loved Me: RCA Recordings from Around the World 1963-1969. Peggy worked with some fabulous songwriters. Did you know that Peggy recorded a very early Randy Newman song, and a cover of a Mike Love-Brian Wilson number? She did!
