Smooth Radio 97-108 featured the story behind the writing of "You've Got A Friend", a signature song for both Carole King and James Taylor. 

'You've Got A Friend' was written by Carole King during the January 1971 recording sessions for her upcoming album Tapestry, and James Taylor's album Mud Slide Slim and Blue Horizon.

"The song was as close to pure inspiration as I've ever experienced" said Carole. "The song wrote itself.  It was written by something outside myself, through me."
