Update 2: FYI..

November 20, 2009

Newshour points up times gone by of collaboration over whole lifetimes,, as per Wednesday, prolific songwriter and singer Johnny Mercer would have turned 100. In his lifetime, he worked with more than 200 collaborators and churned out lyrics for more than 1,500 songs for both Broadway and the silver screen, which were made famous by stars like Judy Garland, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire and Louis Armstrong.

For those interested I understand that Wayne Mowat(ph) is featuring Mercer this weekend. Late nights, I think.. sort of 10.30pm or so.. Saturday.. then Sunday if I’m not too far away on the scheduling..

Could be well worth a quiet restful listen..
