We dip into the archive to bring back Bob’s interview with popular music scholar Philip Furia about his book America’s Songs: The Stories Behind the Songs of Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley. It’s about the most beloved songs of the last century, from the misery of the Depression-era “Brother Can You Spare a Dime?” to the postwar optimism of “Young at Heart.”
Then, our resident folklorists Nancy Groce and Steve Winick from the Library of Congress dip into the archive of the American Folklife Center and bring along songs, poems, and stories about food. [Broadcast Date: July 4, 2013]
