The Uncle Dan And Sophie Jam: Cole Porter

Dan Wakefield and Sophie Faught

Dan Wakefield and Sophie Faught (John Bailey, WFIU)

In this month’s special Uncle Dan and Sophie Jam, it’s a celebration in story and song of one of the greatest names in the Great American Songbook – Peru, Indiana, native Cole Porter. Dan Wakefield and Sophie Faught will talk with Cathy Day, also a Peru native, who is writing a novel about Porter. And, Sophie and her trio will offer interpretations of some of the many Porter tunes that will live forever. Porter famously said, “If I was born 20 years earlier, then I would have been an Indiana banker.” That had been his father’s wish; and, fortunately for all of us, it did not come true. The show was recorded live before an audience at the Jazz Kitchen in Indianapolis.
