It’s another chapter in The Dialogue Series - A chill ‘n chat with authors, fellow podcasters, musicians, and more. Two very special guests joining us: Stacy Widelitz and John DeNicola.

Widelitz is an Emmy nominated composer and songwriter. He co-wrote the smash hit from the soundtrack to the 1987 film Dirty Dancing – “She’s Like The Wind” sung and co-written by the film’s star Patrick Swayze. Widelitz was nominated for an Emmy for his contributions to ABC’s World of Discovery, and has written compositions for various films and made-for-TV movies, including Disney’s Pocahontas II. DeNicola is an Oscar & Golden Globe winning, Grammy-Nominated songwriter and producer. He is the co-writer behind two of the most enduringly successful songs in music history - “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” and “Hungry Eyes”, also from the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.

Widelitz and DeNicola are here to talk about their amazing careers, their songwriting process, and the massive success of Dirty Dancing. Widelitz has a great story about meeting Ray Manzarek of The Doors, and his friendship with Jeff “Skunk” Baxter of Steely Dan and Doobie Brothers fame, who is also a missile defense consultant! DeNicola tells us about his love of The Beatles, how he helped to launch the career of Maroon 5, and the new documentary he's working on about on Peter Lewis of Moby Grape.
