Kiss me once and kiss me twice…

Kiss me once and kiss me twice…

Kitty Kallen and Doris Day, Central Park NYC, 1947

To commemorate the 75th anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (as well as the Russian invasion of Manchuria that started in between), I produced a special documentary episode of my weekly radio program, “Crazy Words, Crazy Tune,” that aired from noon to 2pm on August 7, 2020. Blending popular recordings from 1945 with archival radio news and audio curiosities from that special summer, I think it’s the best work I’ve ever done on radio.

The program is dedicated to my friend Jonathan Granoff, president of the Global Security Institute, a leading anti-nuclear advocacy group, who is also the son of the 1940s-50s singing star Kitty Kallen.

Give a listen!
