Happy Birthday Richard Rodgers!

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Tuesday, 28 June, 2011

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.
