Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Arias and Barcarolles - Taking a cue from President Eisenhower's famous remark to Leonard Bernstein, this week is a sampling of arias, overtures, barcarolles, and other melodic delights that deserve more time on 41 the airwaves. Bill will spin tunes like Lawrence Welks Bubbles in the Wine and Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians performing Jerome Kerns Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. This is a week to just sit back and enjoy.
