IHTSB June 9, 2024

Today’s show features a fine line up of singers and musicians across our time period. We’ll hear two duets, one from Helen Forrest and Dick Haymes and the other from Buddy Clark and Doris day. Going back over 90 years are three recordings from Bing Crosby, Ethel Waters and Al Bowlly, and from 1953 Miles Davis joins us with a classic trumpet piece. We enjoy too Ella Fitzgerald bringing us a lovely Gershwin tune from one of her legendary songbooks.
