Podcast 007: Music My Mother Liked - July 31, 2005

Production note:  sorry about the overmodulation (technical jargon for "it's too damn loud") in the first voiceover.  I was confused.

My mother is probably the source of my taste in music and the musical interest I've had all these years.  She listened to an astonishing range on music in her short life, and here, I talk about and play some of it:  Johnny Mathis, Broadway musicals, Gershwin, Mamas and the Papas, and some strange Sixties stuff.

Opening the show:
Guy Marks, "Loving You Has Made Me Bananas," 1968

Mamas And The Papas, "Words Of Love," 1967

Petula Clark, "Downtown," 1964

Petula Clark, "Downtown (German version)," 1968

Julie Andrews and the original Broadway cast of My Fair Lady, "Wouldn't It Be Loverly," 1956

Helen Thigpen and the cast of Porgy And Bess, "Street Cries (Strawberry Woman)," 1959

Johnny Mathis, "Chances Are," 1958

Simon & Garfunkel, "The Boxer," from Bridge Over Troubled Water, 1968

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Nancy Ellen Ham, 1943-1968.  Thanks, Mom.
