Remembering Broadway Star Rebecca Luker : Fresh Air Luker died last Wednesday of ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease. She was 59. She had a beautiful singing voice, and received Tony nominations for her performances in 'Showboat,' 'The Music Man,' and 'Mary Poppins.' She also starred in a revival of 'The Sound of Music.' We listen back to excerpts of several Fresh Air interviews.

Also, Kevin Whitehead remembers some jazz greats we lost his year.
