The Bob Edwards Show, Philip Furia, Nancy Groce, and Steve Winick, July 4, 2013 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Philip Furia, Nancy Groce, and Steve Winick, July 4, 2013

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.”
