Question of the Day: Golden Songs

by Corny O'Connell

Last night's Golden Globe Awards are still on our minds this morning. And that's got us thinking about songs with "gold" and "golden" in the lyrics. Give us some nominees for the Question of the Day set and we'll draw the winners after 9am.

Here's what we played: 

"Stay Gold" by First Aid Kit 

"Goldfinger" by Shirley Bassey 

"Golden Lady" by Stevie Wonder 

"The Golden State" by John Doe with Kathleen Edwards 

Reser's Pieces: "The Big Broadcast" for January 11, 2015

by Rich Conaty

I recorded this show before I did last Sunday's live one. I expected to like the last one more, since it included Al Bowlly and Henry "Red" Allen, but this one may be better. Sometimes the birthdays line up so well, I'd have to go out of my way to wreck it. There are three distinctive voices: Henry Burr, Sophie Tucker and Russ Columbo. Burr began recording in 1903, and was active until his passing in 1941. Sophie Tucker was making cylinder recordings in 1910, and I remember seeing her on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Russ Columbo had a short, tragic life.
