The Legacy of…Irving Berlin with Marty Schneit
Hosted By: DOROT
Jerome Kern concluded that Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He is American music. During Irving Berlin’s career he published an estimated 1,500 songs. Marty will discuss how the immigrant boy from Russia became the classic ragtime to riches story. Irving Berlin’s first published song earned him 37 cents. Sit down and listen to the story of one of the greatest songwriters of popular songs, songs like Alexander’s Ragtime Band, God Bless America, White Christmas, A Pretty Girls is like a Melody, Puttin on The Ritz and There is No Business Like Show Business.
