The music of Irving Berlin is the focus of the program this week. He's one of the biggies when it comes to composers of work that makes up a big part of the Great American Songbook. Really, one of the cornerstones. Berlin, not to overstate it, was a huge presence in 20th century popular music. We’ll hear Berlin classics from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dinah Washington, Tony Bennett, and many more.
