The Dress Circle: Additional Songs by Roger Edens

You may not know the name, but you’re sure to know the songs we’ll be showcasing of Roger Edens on this week’s Dress Circle (1/31 7:00 p.m.).  After a short stint on Broadway as a pianist, Edens was one of the throng who went to Hollywood and the films, but in his case, it was a wise move.  He came to the attention of Arthur Freed at MGM, and for nearly three decades wrote songs and incidental music for some of Hollywood’s most loved musicals such as “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Funny Face,” “Good News,” “Meet Me in St. Louis,” and “On the Town.”  He won three Academy Awards during his career and is credited with recognizing and fostering the talents of Judy Garland, and we’ll be including a song from one of Garland’s early films, “Every Sunday.” 

Join us as we remember a forgotten artist whose songs are still bringing a great deal of happiness to viewers.
