Ted Gioia: Love Songs: The Hidden History

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 3:30pm

“Strangers in the night…”. Love songs have been sung since ancient times, but they have often been marginalized and considered radical and disruptive. From Assyrian marriage songs to the crooning of Sinatra and beyond, we all enjoy love songs. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with TED GIOIA, author and music historian about his wonderful new book LOVE SONGS: THE HIDDEN HISTORY. Tonight we talk about those rowdy and lusty troubadours!
