    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    This week we feature rarities from the newly-issued "Fixin' To Die" by cult troubadour Jackson C. Frank. He released just one album in his lifetime, produced by Paul Simon in 1965.

    Blue Tunes Recommended - Leonard Bernstein: Aug 18th - 24th

    When Leonard Bernstein passed away in 1990 at the age of 72, he left a legacy that is unparalleled in American music. As a composer, conductor, pianist and educator, one critic called him “one of the most prodigiously talented and successful musicians in American history”.  With such a variety of material to choose from, he’s our Blue Tunes recommended artist all this week on the programme.
