We feature a tribute to Hoagy Carmichael

Carmichael wrote Star Dust, Heart and Soul, The Nearness of You, Skylark and many more. We feature performances by singer Rebecca Kilgore and pianist Dave Frishberg. We'll also talk with Richard Sudhalter, who has written a forthcoming biography of Carmichael. And we talk with Carmichael's son, Hoagy Bix Carmichael who now manages his father's music catalogue.
