This week on ACDA Radio, ChoralNet and Going Beyond Words, you will enjoy a 180 degree turn as host Stan Schmidt gives you a quiz about an amazing American composer. He was born in 1893 and wrote hit after hit with a great number of his compositions finding their way to the movies. No it wasn’t Cole Porter or someone of that fame. It was . . .
You will just have to listen until the close of these 19 songs, ll of which you know. But who wrote it? Songs like “That’s Amore,” “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby,” the love song “At Last,” or “Serenade in Blue,” which a famous band leader used for his theme. How about “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”? Those of you who teach jazz will know right away, but take a minute to listen to this during a lunch break and see how many you know.
