Monday Mornings @ the Library: Old Time Radio & the Great American Songbook

Monday, April 24

Steve Darnall's presentation examines how radio helped to give birth to the "Great American Songbook" by offering songs and singers a unique opportunity to present their songs to a national audience. Hear actual radio clips featuring some of the greatest songwriters of the 20th century as they were heard on radio—including Johnny Mercer, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and a rare 1934 performance from George Gershwin!
