Inquiry: Robert Kimball: THE COMPLETE LYRICS OF JOHNNY MERCER

Date: 
Monday, December 21, 2009 - 10:25am
Program: 

Johnny Mercer was one of the most prolific songwriters of 20th Century America. During his decades long career he wrote the lyrics for such memorable songs as “Moon River”, “Blues In the Night”, “Hooray For Hollywood”, “Laura”, “Something’s Gotta Give”. The list Mercer’s hits goes on and on. He was nominated for 18 Academy Awards and wrote songs for Broadway too. If that wasn’t enough, he was also one of the founders of Capitol Records. Tonight on Inquiry we chat with ROBERT KIMBALL, writer, music critic of the New York Post and Editor of the Complete Lyrics series of books.

Inquiry: Jimmy McDonaugh: TAMMY WYNETTE: TRAGIC COUNTRY QUEEN

Date: 
Friday, December 18, 2009 - 11:09am
Program: 

She looked like a “tiny, troubled wisp of a human being” as she stepped up to the mike, but when she opened up her mouth, out came “an atom bomb voice”. This is how JIMMY McDONAUGH , writer, autobiographer and tonight’s guest on Inquiry, describes Tammy Wynette. She sang before five presidents, had twenty #1 hits and five husbands, and is loved fiercely by her fans. Tammy was one of the great country music stars of the 20th Century, with hits like “Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad”, “Stand By Your Man”, and “Apartment #9”.
