More Sunday Songbirds

 Elaine Stritch will be on hand with
"Are You Having Any Fun?"
a Sammy Fain/Jack Yellin tune...from her "Stritch" album, 1956.
Tony Bennett later recorded it with the Count Basie Orchestra.

 Mandy Patinkin, from the Lincoln Center Concert version
of Sondheim's Follies,
does a schizophrenic version of "Buddy's Blues."

 Sammy Davis Jr. did Golden Boy in 1964,
and from that, we'll hear "Night Song"...
written by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams.
 Peggy Lee
(our lone non-Broadway singer this week!)
and her Grammy-winning  "Is That All There Is?"
written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
