Remember all of those great American standards in the 40's, 50's and 60's, from Bing Crosby and  Nat "King" Cole, Rosemary Clooney and Dinah Shore?  And the popular songs from movies and Broadway shows?  They are all in the Great American Songbook, now playing day and night on 88.7-2 KWTU!

"The Great American Songbook, also known as 'American Standards', is the canon of the most important and influential American popular songs and jazz standards from the early 20th century. It includes the most popular and enduring songs from the 1920s to the 1950s that were created for Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical film. They have been recorded and performed by a large number and wide range of singers, instrumental bands, and jazz musicians. The Songbook comprises standards by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin, and also Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Richard Rodgers, and others." - Wikipedia
