Long before the Brill Building, Tin Pan Alley ruled the pop charts and the streets of Broadway. This era's amazing collection of songs has been given a very dignified and fitting moniker - the Great American Songbook. The writers of the timeless tunes that grace this beloved book are some of the most legendary artists in American history, and the very souls that gave America its first ever contribution to world culture in the first half of the 20th Century. Fellow Music-Historian-In-Training Joe Lavelle returns for a third volume of these undeniably timeless songs, and we pay tribute to the writers that made it all possible by playing versions of these songs performed by some of the greats from the past and relative present. Get your historian hat on and join us. Stream this playlist on Spotify.
