Doc Pomus: The Unknown Story Of A Songwriting Sensation

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Doc Pomus

He called himself “Doc Pomus,” and he wrote some of the most iconic songs of the 1950's and '60s; songs like “Viva Las Vegas,” “Save the Last Dance for Me” and “This Magic Moment.” But a new documentary called "AKA Doc Pomus” aims to share the story of the man behind the hits -- a disabled Brooklyn songwriter who succeeded in the music industry against all odds.

We talk with one of the film’s directors, Peter Miller, as well as Doc Pomus's daughter and the film’s producer, Sharyn Felder.

Guests:

Sharyn Felder and Peter Miller
