The Neon Beat on Radio George - 8.14.17

On The Neon Beat this week, Jukebox 1: The Marvelous Marilyn Maye opens up this week’s offerings with her great rendition of “Cabaret.” The English Gentleman, Roger Whittaker, takes it next with the song, “New World in the Morning,” followed up with some Burt Bacharach/Hal David music sung by Dionne Warwick. We’ll remember that night in London’s west end as “A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square” with Bobby Darin. The first lady of song, Ella Fitzgerald, performs a great Cole Porter selection. Listen to some Broadway with Frank Sinatra’s rendition of “April in Paris,” and a couple of songs from “Gypsy” sung by Mel Torme and Tony Bennett. We’ll track a 1962 hit single for Nat King Cole, “Rambling Rose,” followed up with Brenda Lee’s “the Grass is Greener,” and a sprite version of “Cab Driver” by the Mills Brothers. Enjoy a set starting with Barbra Streisand from “Funny Girl,” Dean Martin singing with the Easy Riders with “Memories are Made of This.” Then laugh a little with Phil Harris’s “44 Sycamore.” Instrumentals with Horst Jankowsky and Glenn Miller.
