Tune in to Adventures in Sound as we celebrate Irving Berlin's birth anniversary!

Berlin, one of America's greatest songwriters, was born on May 11, 1888 in Russia; he died on September 22, 1989(!) in New York City.

Among his many classic songs are: White Christmas, Alexander's Ragtime Band, God Bless America, Easter Parade,  and Heat Wave; over 1,100 songs in all.

We'll hear vintage recordings of Berlin songs from the 1910s and 20s (featuring Ted Lewis, Blossom Seeley, Billy Murray, and many others).

All of this happens on May 12 from 1 to 2 p.m. (CST) on 91.7 FM (or koop.org).

Thank you for listening!
