Happy Birthday to Cy Coleman...born on June 14, 1929,
in New York City.
Composer of Sweet Charity, Wild Cat, Little Me,
Barnum, City of Angels...and a ton more.
Love this shot of Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers.
They met while attending Columbia, back in 1919,
and began writing popular songs and musicals...
Today we'll hear from Babes in Arms, On Your Toes, Pal Joey,
George and Ira Gershwin,
arriving in Hollywood.
But first they were all Broadway!
Oh Kay, Girl Crazy, Of Thee I Sing...
each one crammed with songs that are now
part of our musical language.
