THE POETIC VOICE
St. Valentine's Day Eve Special

The Poetic Voice

The Poetic Voice from Various Artists

This Saint Valentine's Day we'll be listening to the romantic musings of the spoken poetic voice. Our focus will be on four performers. Getting off to a bumpy start, we're foolishly choosing to feature several selections from Jayne Mansfield's 1964 album Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky and Me which is moderately dreadful. Then, if you haven't already turned off the radio, the torch will be lit and you rewarded (?) with a quiet blend of soft music, nostalgic lyrics, and tranquil patter from the all-night radio giant Franklyn MacCormack with the Russ Garcia Orchestra recorded in 1958. You'll also be treated to some original "Passions in Prose" from Mary Lee Fair, host of the radio program "Lovingly Yours, Laura" with harp and trumpet accompaniment. Finally my darling, we'll be paid a visit from Renzo Cesana, The Continental himself, who begs the question, "Would you like another glass of champagne?"
