  • The broadcasting tradition referred to involves recognizing the close of each year with a series of meticulously researched programs featuring music composed, published or recorded

This program's pre-show

This program's pre-show list of potentials was shaped by several forces. For example there is the terrible aftermath of the storms that recently converged on the East Coast, and the hideous possibility of more protracted general devastation in this country if the Republicans wreck the economy and defecate all over the Bill of Rights.

For those who care about methodology, this is a revised list representing choices made in order to tailor the list to fit comfortably within a 60 minute radio broadcast.

This week, let's honor Spencer Williams - not the actor who appeared on TV's Amos & Andy show, but the songwriter who was born in New Orleans Louisiana on October 14 1889 and passed away in Flushing New York on July 14 1965. This remarkable  man composed quite a number of early jazz standards.
