Songs of the Season: Autumn 2015

Dinah Washington-September in the Rain

It’s that time of year when Afterglow brings you our annual salute to changing leaves, crisp fall air, and pumpkin spice with a “Songs of the Season” episode for autumn. As we'll hear, autumn songs are generally ballads, with a tinge of regret and melancholy permeating the lyrics, as the carefree days of summer are blown away with the brisk fall breeze. This hour, we'll showcase some favorite “songs of the season” sung by Tony Bennett, José James, and more, including “Autumn Leaves,” “Autumn in New York,” and several songs about the autumn month which seems to get a disproportionate amount of attention in the Great American Songbook: September.
