Songs Of The Season: Autumn 2017


On this program, it's my annual salute to changing leaves, crisp fall air, and pumpkin spice with some “Songs of the Season” for autumn. Autumn songs from the Great American Songbook 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 hear some favorite songs of the season, including “Autumn Leaves,” “Autumn in New York,” and “September in the Rain,” sung by Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Leon Redbone, and more.
