Live and Local

Part One of Two with Michael Lasser, Author of New Book on America’s Songs


Several years ago, Philip Furia and Michael Lasser published a book called America’s Songs: The Stories Behind the Songs of Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley. As you might expect, there were far too many songs to choose from. So Michael Lasser wrote a sequel, America’s Songs II: Songs from the 1890s to the Post-War Years. Michael will be my guest on the Tuesday and Wednesday editions of “Live and Local,” sharing wonderful stories about some great songs.
