In addition to playing one of their songs at the gala concert (see earlier post), I also had the chance to talk to Alan and Marilyn Bergman in the studio about their careers and their advice for students. They were in town for Alan to receive a Distinguished Alumnus Award at University Day.
Alan talks about why he came to Chapel Hill, what he learned, and how he and Marilyn started writing songs together. They both talk about how to get started in the business and how to write a TV theme song.
Please watch and listen to our conversation.
