Autumn Leaves

Audio Recording

ImageIf you missed today's Serenade Radio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week, here's a chance to catch up.

For those of us in the northern hemisphere, fall nips the air and finds Mark in autumnal mode with a song that drifts like a leaf in an October wind from French poem to Hungarian tune to American lyric. Mark tells the story of a famous seasonal classic from Yves Montand to Ian Fleming, with performances by an array of stars from Cora Vaucaire and Tino Rossi to Nat King Cole and Eva Cassidy.
