on Old Codger with Courtney T. Edison
The Old Codger will present an hour-long birthday tribute to the great singer, composer, pianist, organist, and all-around entertainer Thomas "Fats" Waller. Fats was born on May 21, 1904, and even though he's younger than the Codger, he passed away 78 years ago at the age of 39. Waller wrote dozens of Tin Pan Alley classics such as "Ain't Misbehavin'," "Honeysuckle Rose," and "Your Feet's Too Big"; he appeared in motion pictures, and made hundreds of recordings. Tune in to hear a few dozen on this week's Philco Cheap Cigar Boudoir with Courtney T. Edison, the Old Codger.
