Happy birthday, Frank

It’s the birthday of American composer and lyricist Frank Loesser (1910-1969), who wrote “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition” (1942), “Once In Love with Amy” (1948), “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (1949), “A Bushel and a Peck” (1950), and “Inchworm” (1952), among hundreds of other songs. Loesser created the music for several Broadway shows, including Guys and Dolls (1950), which won him two Tony awards, and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1961), which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This performance of “Brotherhood of Man” is from the 50th anniversary revival of How to Succeed.
