In Part One, David Shapiro plays the violin and reads his poetry and that of his young students from Bedford-Stuyvesant. In Part Two, Rosalyn Drexler sings torch songs from the 1920s and 1930s, and reads excerpts from her novels. Mimi Anderson gives the introduction, and is the producer of the program. Engineered by Bill Taylor, Nancy Allen and Susan Sheftel.
