Fascinatin' Rhythm: John Wallowitch's New York, 04/21/18


Episode # 1816

Songwriter John Wallowitch grew up in Philadelphia but his heart always belonged to New York. He wrote many hundreds of songs—bittersweet love ballads, wacky comic numbers—but his deepest inspiration was New York, itself: the people he met, the clubs he sang in, the streets he walked at every time of day. He was tough enough to make it in Manhattan and sweet enough to be loved by everyone who knew him.
