Doc Pomus…. You know his songs, now hear his story!

He wrote a thousand songs, including some of the most recorded songs in the history of popular music.
Packed with incomparable music and rare archival imagery, “A.K.A. DOC POMUS” features music and interviews with Doc’s collaborators and friends, including Leiber and Stoller, Dr. John, Andy Williams, Ben E.
