KQED Plus: Sat, Aug 13, 2011 -- 2:30 PM

Since the earliest days of pop music, great vocal duets have conveyed a unique emotional power that has given them a special place in the hearts of music fans everywhere.

From the passionate expression of undying friendship in Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," to the timeless power of love described by Aaron Neville and Linda Ronstadt in "Don't Know Much," this special covers a wide range of the pop music landscape, with classic hit songs from the 1960s, 70s and 80s. (Please note: this program is apparently produced in Mono.)
