I'm a long time listener on weekends. Usually coming home from golf and finding it on at home when i arrive.

I'd love to hear Sinatra with the Metronome All-star band, do Sweet Lorraine!
I have a couple of copies of the Columbia 78 but nothing to safely play them with.

Once again thanks to Jonathan an amazing musical epiphany -- this time Diana Panton from Canada. 15 minutes ago I'd never heard of her, then Jonathan played one of her songs and now she's one of my favorite jazz singers. I similarly discovered Stacey Kent this way and I remember back in the 90's I was driving on the Grand Central Parkway listening to Jonathan's show when he put on a CD by a young singer named Diana Krall. Doing Nat King Cole's Hit That Jive, Jack. I almost ran the car off the road in excitement. Jonathan is a national treasure.

Harold Arlen did NOT write the lyrics to "Sleeping Bee"

Truman Capote did.

Play the version by Barbra Streisand next Sunday so you can make a correction.
