Fascinatin' Rhythm: Rodgers and Hart in NYC, 05/15/21


Episode #2120

5/15      Rodgers and Hart in NYC Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart were born and bred in New York City. They went to Hollywood to work in the early thirties, but mainly they loved New York and couldn’t wait to return. As Hart put it in a title, “I Gotta Get Back to New York.” Their songs combined the wiseguy wit and blunt emotionalism you expect from New Yorkers.
