May 6th: “Celebrating John Kander (Part 4)”                                                             The award-winning composer of “Cabaret” and “Chicago” recently turned 90, and we’ll survery his extraordinary career in a program laced with clips from Bill Rudman’s exclusive interview.                                                            

May 13th: “Right Off the Streets”
Songs that sing out with the news of their day, or with pungent social commentary — from “Brother Can You Spare a Dime?” to “West Side Story.”

May 20th: “Laundry Lists”
Which is another name for what writers like Cole Porter called list songs, and they include “You’re the Top” (naturally!), “Let’s Do It” and “The Lady Is a Tramp.”

May 27th: “Curiouser and Curiouser …”                                                               Recordings you will never hear anywhere else — including Jack Nicholson singing (!) and a cut from Ethel Merman’s disco album.
