(Apr. 26-May 16) — Over a remarkably prolific seven years, songwriter and producer Bert Berns, the child of Russian Jewish immigrants who worked in the garment industry, crafted classics like “Piece of My Heart,” “Under the Boardwalk” and “Twist and Shout,” while also launching the careers of Van Morrison and Neil Diamond. 

Berns loved Israel, and his colorful story stretches from the Bronx to Cuba, the Brill Building and Atlantic Records to his own successful record labels, Bang and Shout.

Narrated by Steven Van Zandt.
