Jack Viertel on Jerry Lieber

New York Times:

Jerry saw himself very much as a product of the vaudeville tradition: a Jewish comedian, though not a performer himself....Jerry and Mike turned the recording studio into a mini-theater that owed as much to radio drama (and comedy) as to more traditional songwriting.

(picture: Richard Kollmar on the air as "Boston Blackie"; cf. "Searchin'")
