It’s “Lean On Me” on ‘Tickets @ 2′ by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bill Withers[/lastfm]. When coming up with the song, Bill said: “This was from my second album, so I could afford to buy myself a little Wurlitzer electric piano. There I was sitting there just running my fingers up and down the keyboard when the phrase ‘Lean On Me’ crossed my mind.”

Withers did not record his first song until he was 32 years old. He spent nine years in the Navy, then worked a an airplane factory installing toilets in airplanes. A #1 hit could be a life changing experience.

We’ll take lucky caller 13 when it plays between two and three to win a pair of tickets to the Queen Mary’s ‘Dark Harbor’ Halloween event for a fright filled night of mazes, music, food, drinks, and ‘live’ music at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
