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.
