The Great American Songbook

Update 5/22: So far, other stations that we know of who will be carrying this show are KHNS in Alaska, (Haines, Skagway and Klukwan), Spokane Public Radio, and KTXK in Texarkana, Texas.

WHQR presents a special program for this year's Memorial Day commemoration. Since 2010 WHQR has presented daily segments of the Great American Songbook, produced by George Scheibner with Dr. Philip Furia. Collectively the episodes present an enduring body of classic American song, performed generation after generation by musicians and singers.
