Remember the songs "Up, Up and Away" and "MacArthur Park"? Well, Jim Webb, an Elk City native wrote those songs. No word on whether growing up in Elk City gave him an experience close to a cake melting in the rain, but somehow he turned those lyrics into successful hits for Richard Harris, Waylon Jennings, and Donna Summer.
