For those who missed today's Serenade Radio edition of our Song of the Week, here's a chance to catch up. Today's edition is not inappropriate for Father's Day, as Josh Passell, a First Weekend Founding Member of The Mark Steyn Club, writes from Massachusetts:
Just listened to your Edelweiss/Hammerstein II tribute, a song written by a father for a father. Still drying my eyes. Thank you so much for all of these productions. Gems all.
Thank you, Josh. On today's episode Mark celebrates the very last song of the most famous partnership in American musical theatre - Rodgers & Hammerstein. The story takes in Habsburg history, Ronald Reagan, and an actual authentic member of the von Trapp family.
