Saturday 22nd March
“Songs always fascinated me more than anything”, so said Johnny Mercer who wrote the lyrics for more than fifteen hundred songs, including compositions for movies and Broadway shows. He received nineteen Academy Award nominations, and won four. Enjoy a triple play from this great songwriter today including ‘Moonriver’ which he wrote with Henry Mancini and ‘In the Cool Cool Cool of the evening’ with Hoagy Carmichael. Great soundtracks too this afternoon from The Great Escape, Cloud Atlas, The Lone Ranger, Scent of a Woman and Shane.
