Taylor Simon King’s cover of JT’s cover of the Marvin Gaye classic “How Sweet It Is” is the Makin Waves Song of the Week.

As the Makin Waves Song of the Week, “How Sweet It Is” also can be heard between 6 and 8 p.m. on Nov. 5 on “Radio Jersey” at ThePenguinRocks.com

Taylor Simon King’s clever musical arrangements and carefully chosen, unforgettable songs take audiences through decades of the legendary singer-songwriters’ individual careers and beloved music.
