Part Two on America’s Songs with Michael Lasser


Michael Lasser is a writer, critic, teacher and host of the nationally syndicated radio program Fascinatin’ Rhythm. He grew up in New Jersey in the shadow of Broadway, and the theater and its songs have been in his blood ever since. Lasser has written a new book called America’s Songs II: Songs from the 1890s to the Post-War Years, and on the Wednesday edition of “Live and Local,” we’ll visit for part two of a conversation sharing more great stories about more great songs.
