Sir Michael Parkinson introduces a special Friday Night Is Music Night celebrating the great lyricist, Sammy Cahn.
Cahnís prodigious output included writing over sixty hit songs for Frank Sinatra alone, including Come Fly With Me, All The Way, Call Me Irresponsible, High Hopes and Three Coins In The Fountain. He was nominated for an Oscar 23 times and won four. Doris Day, Nat King Cole, Danny Kaye, Bing Crosby and Dean Martin all recorded and had hits with his songs. So enduring is his catalogue that contemporary artists including Michael Buble, Jamie Cullum and Diana Krall include his songs on their current albums.The BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Broadway Maestro Larry Blank, are joined by guest singers Curtis Stigers, Lance Ellington, Alison Jiear and Joe Stilgoe.
