We’ll pay tribute to singer, songwriter and producer Ellie Greenwich on what would have been her 74th birthday when host Alan Seltzer offers a full hour of her music Thursday night at 9 PM on “The Grooveyard”.  Along with well-known hits like “Leader of the Pack” and “Be My Baby”, we’ll share some lesser-known recordings by Greenwich and alternate versions of her songs.  The Top Ten @ 10 will feature the hits of October 23, 1957.
