Another edition of our American Popular Song Series, profiling composer JEROME KERN Another edition of our American Popular Song Series, profiling composer JEROME KERN. He wrote the songs "All the Things You are," "Can't Help Lovin' That Man," "I'm Old-Fashioned," "Ol' Man River," and "The Way You Look Tonight." A number of those songs are from the broadway musical "Showboat" which he wrote. We'll focus on the music he wrote before then, before 1927. Terry will talk with JOHN MCGLINN, an authority on Kern, and we'll hear performances by: REBECCA LUKER, who starred in the revivals of "Showboat" and the "Sound of Music," GEORGE DVORSKY who sang leading roles in the New York City Opera's productions of "Cinderella" and Brigadoon." They'll be accompanied by WILLIAM HICKS, assistant conductor and assistant chorus master at the Metropolitan Opera.
