Bea Wain

Singer Bea Wain will celebrate her 90th birthday at the end of this month. As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us in this edition of the Fishko Files, Wain’s voice took her far...and introduced her to other voices she remembers well...

Listen to Sing Sing Sing, performed by the V-8 Vocal Ensemble, with Bea Wain (and 7 others!) From the Fred Waring Radio Show, CBS Radio 1936.
