www.npr.org

Coming up this August on Fascinatin' Rhythm:

8/2        Not Your Everyday Rain Songs  When you take a common image and make it sing, you’re making the familiar into something fresh; it’s what songwriters do.

8/9        Home Songs  Americans may claim wanderlust as their birthright, but we also like being home or making a home.

8/16      Abe Lincoln in Song  Campaign songs, comic songs, and soaring anthems: how the songs of his time portrayed America’s 16th president.

8/23      Hearing That Song Again  Giving songs new life by making a ballad into a blues, a waltz into a rag. Popular songs keep remaking themselves.

8/30      Three Sides of Gus Kahn  We like to think that songs are sunny, but the also inhabit and portray a demi-monde where anything and everything goes.
