Ten-ish Anyone?

by Rich Conaty
A A

A pair of singers, a jazz violinist and seven songwriters, most of whom with 100+ ASCAP entries.  How to juggle ten salutes, plus requests, in four hours?  The trick is not over-picking.  What's the point in pulling two dozen recordings of Harry ("Dinah") Akst songs if only six or seven stand a chance in making it to the air?  And since the "Big Broadcast" is put together at home, more music isn't far.  Only risk is tripping over Mickey, or Yoda...or Scrappy.
