The Great American Songbook with Philip Furia http://whqr.org en Friday Feedback for January 4, 2013 http://whqr.org/post/friday-feedback-january-4-2013 <p></p><p></p><p>An anonymous long-time friend of the station from Lumberton sent us a generous end-of-year donation along with this note:</p><blockquote><p>Everytime I listen to Diane Rehm, my enthusiasm tends to be dampened. But never mind me. With the exception of my feelings that the station leans more left than it ever has before and is not balanced in certain program choices … the music is non-political and has no ideology, and I enjoy that – so I will donate.</p></blockquote><p>We thank anonymous both for the contribution and the comment.</p><p>Listener Izzi wrote:</p> Fri, 04 Jan 2013 10:00:00 +0000 Cleve Callison 29607 at http://whqr.org Friday Feedback for January 4, 2013 Great American Songbook Part One: What Makes a Song Last? http://whqr.org/post/great-american-songbook-part-one-what-makes-song-last <p>Current popular singers like Queen Latifah, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney, and even country singer Willie Nelson, are tackling old songs written by the great composers and lyricists from the first half of the 20<sup>th</sup> century.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Fri, 24 Feb 2012 21:52:12 +0000 Rachel Lewis Hilburn 12150 at http://whqr.org Great American Songbook Part One: What Makes a Song Last?
