Today we begin our annual tour of the summer sky at night in song. This was a favorite theme with songwriters, who produced many songs about the moon, stars and the night in general. We start off this year’s tour of the night sky with songs about the moon, brought to us by singers and musicians in wonderful recordings they made in the 1940s and 1950s.
