Michael Lasser,
special guest

This lively program of everlasting popular songs will feature as our special guest the writer, broadcaster, critic and teacher Michael Lasser, who explores the history and themes of American popular music in his weekly syndicated radio program, Fascinatin’ Rhythm. His sparkling commentary will illuminate the ways in which eighteen of the great songs of the American Songbook meld words, music, sentiment and wit into a seamless whole—with songs including “Star Dust,” “As Time Goes By,” “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” “Embraceable You,” “One for My Baby” and of course “Fascinatin’ Rhythm.”
