Atomic Age Cocktail Party

Making A Splash (1079)

Atomic Age logo with an illustration of a female swimmer diving. Text reads Episode 1079 Making A Splash.

This time around on the program, we're "Making A Splash!" Songs about seas, oceans, rivers, and all sorts of various formations of H2O. So many classics of the Great American Songbook use water, in some way, as their thematic hook and this week we’re, if you’ll pardon our pun, diving right in. We’ll hear from Les Baxter, Earl Grant, Sarah Vaughan, Bobby Darin, and many more!
