Fascinatin' Rhythm: Mark Twain's America, 08/29/20


Episode # 2035     Mark Twain’s America

Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are in America’s DNA. Tom is a book for boys, Huck for adults, yet neither shrinks from the places in the human heart. Mark Twain’s America appears in the songs of his time, and in the songs written for stage and movie versions of his most famous novels, from the Disney version of Tom Sawyer to Roger Miller’s Broadway musical, Big River.
