Michael Lasser and Musicians, The Songs of Johnny Mercer
Even if you’re not aware of it, you know Johnny Mercer. His more than 1,400 songs for radio, records, motion pictures and Broadway include “Laura,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “Accentuate the Positive,” and “Moon River.” He was both a top radio personality and recording artist himself and was the co-founder and President of Capitol Records. Johnny Mercer’s poetic genius continues to reflect the romantic yearnings, the wit, the energy, and the personality that is our America dream. Return to a golden age of American songwriting with host Michael Lasser and musicians Cindy Miller (vocals) and Alan Jones (piano and vocals).
