11:05 Marty Duda's artist of the week: The Turtles
Led by vocalist Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, The Turtles recorded a string of hit singles in the 1960s that remain shining examples of the best of that decade’s pop-rock. The band and its producers created some of the most sonically adventurous pop records of the era and, although they were accomplished songwriters themselves, also covered songs from up-and-coming writers like Warren Zevon and Harry Nilsson along with Bob Dylan and Carole King. After the band split, Kaylan and Volman went on to become much-sought-after backing vocalists, adding their magic to hits like T Rex’s 'Bang A Gong (Get It On)' and Bruce Springsteen’s 'Hungry Heart'.
