The programs will be released on June 11, which would have been the date of the 2020 SHOF Induction & Awards Gala.
The GRAMMY Museum announced on Wednesday (June 10) that it will post two Songwriters Hall of Fame programs from its archive on its website. The programs will be available on www.GrammyMuseum.org on Thursday (June 11), which would have been the date of the 2020 SHOF Induction & Awards Gala. That event was postponed to June 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here are the details about the two programs:
"Legends In The Round" (recorded Oct. 19, 2010): Paul Williams, an SHOF inductee who was to receive the organization’s prestigious Johnny Mercer Award this year (and will instead receive it next year) moderated this panel, which consisted entirely of SHOF inductees -- Hal David, Lamont Dozier, Mac Davis and Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson. (David and Dozier also received the Mercer Award -- David in tandem with Burt Bacharach and Dozier alongside Brian and Eddie Holland.)
