Noon Edition

The Harry Warren Songbook

harrywarren-oscar

The Great American Songbook is full of familiar names: George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern. However, the name Harry Warren might not immediately ring a bell. While this Hollywood composer’s name might have eluded the spotlight, his dozens of hits written in the golden age of the film musical certainly have not, hits like “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “42nd Street,” and “At Last.” On this episode, we’ll hear Warren’s songs sung by Nat King Cole, Dinah Washington, the Flamingos, and others.
