We’re headed back to The Great White Way for another spotlight on the music of Broadway. It’s a huge part of The Great American Songbook offering up a rich and vast catalog of tunes. And it’s music that artists of the hi-fi era came back to again and again. On the bill, Johnny Mathis, Robert Goulet, Marilyn Maxwell, Carol Burnett, and many more.
