Main: 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 110th 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.

Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er . If you are in the Unit­ed States, please use the fol­low­ing link: .
