Italian-American Songbook, Thurs.,Jan.20 at 4 p.m.
This Thurs., at 4 p.m., LET’S TRAVEL! Radio will broadcast a one-hour special-The Italian American Songbook
The show features award-winning writer/ author Mark Rotella whose book AMORE is a classic tribute to the legendary “crooners” from the 30s-to-present, who whose Italian-American origins produced a genre in American music that’s still very alive today.
Think Sinatra, Como, Martin, Desmond, Lanza, even Bennett, to Dion, Bon Giovi, Springsteen, and others.
From Caruso to today’s music, the show will put you in a frame of mind that signals an era from the glory days of WWI-to-WW II-to the 21st
Joining mark with be Aldo Mancusi, founder of the CARUSO MUSEUM in
NYC, W.J.Ronayne, Director of the MARIO LANZA INSTITUE, and Vince Giordano, whose society orchestra, THE NIGHTHAWKS, needes no introduction.
We’ll hear some old recordings, some modern and new, and some you may not have heard. This show is for those who love great music.
And if you’re a fan of the famous crooners, this is the one for you.
