Noon Edition

The Songwriter Sings: Bobby Troup

This week on Afterglow we’ll feature a new compilation of early-1950s recordings from Bobby Troup, author of “Route 66,” as well as the very first session that Troup’s eventual wife Julie London recorded (the two also starred in the early 1970s TV program Emergency! ).

We’ll also hear from McCoy Tyner, Chet Baker, Benny Carter, Diana Krall, and Sylvia McNair, the classical soprano singer, doing a set of Harold Arlen songs.
