Afterglow kicks off its celebration of the season featuring wintry and celebratory music.
An 80th-birthday tribute to the singer critic Larry Kart once described as “a dominating vocal presence whose music is full of hard-earned wisdom and truth.”
This week on Afterglow it’s “Sinatra in Hollywood,” with music from the many movies of Frank Sinatra, including Pal Joey , Anchors Aweigh , High Society , Guys and Dolls , and more, as well as unreleased recordings from The Man With the Golden Arm and an aborted 1954 animated production of Finian’s Rainbow (which features, among other things, a Sinatra-Ella Fitzgerald duet).
This week on Afterglow we'll have a set of New Year’s songs from Peggy Lee, June Christy, and Ella Fitzgerald.
This week on Afterglow we’ll feature a new compilation of early-1950s recordings from Bobby Troup, author of “Route 66".
