Just a reminder: Next week, A&E pays tribute to Burt with three episodes of its Biography series. A&E kicks things off on Monday, Aug. 27, with Hitmakers: The Teens Who Stole Pop Music, a profile of the Brill Building songwriters. On Tuesday, Aug. 28, Biography airs Dionne Warwick: Don’t Make Me Over. And (saving the best for last?) on Friday, Aug. 31, A&E devotes an hour to Burt Bacharach (which has received Alec Cumming’s enthusiastic endorsement). As the saying goes, check your local listing for showtimes.

Burt also recently taped an interview for 60 Minutes Australia, where his new CD is doing well.

I’ll pass along an air date as soon as we know an air date.

By the way, today is Jackie DeShannon’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Jackie!
