Sir Michael Parkinson introduces a special Friday Night Is Music Night celebrating the great lyricist, Sammy Cahn.
Cahn's spectacular 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, Mario Lanza 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 still include his work on their current albums. The BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Broadway maestro Larry Blank are joined by guest singers Curtis Stigers, Lance Ellington, Ali Jaier and Joe Stilgoe to re-create the magic of this fantastic songwriter.
