All Things Considered remembers singer Harry Babbitt, who died earlier this month at age 90. He was known for his warm, high-baritone voice, and he performed with the Kay Kyser big band on the World War II hit "The White Cliffs of Dover." He also voiced the laugh of cartoon character Woody Woodpecker.
