Happy Birthday Richard Rodgers!

On this day in 1902, the Amer­i­can com­pos­er Richard Rodgers was born.

Rodgers, along with his lyri­cists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Ham­mer­stein II, wrote some of the most icon­ic songs of the 20th Cen­tu­ry, for Broad­way, movies and tele­vi­sion.

In hon­or of his 109th Birth­day, today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream fea­tures his music as well as oth­er music from Broad­way and some of his con­tem­po­raries such as George Gersh­win, Irv­ing Berlin and John­ny Mer­cer.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
