Dubbed “The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,” Michael Feinstein joined Host Robert Hammond on Stage Notes. They talked about Feinstein’s vast and wide-ranging career, his time working with Ira Gershwin, some of his favorite songs & interviews, and his program on NPR, Song Travels.
This special edition of Stage Notes was in memory of Rochester native April Bloch, who died on November 15, 2012. She was twenty-six. Although raised in Rochester, she was definitely a California girl, who spent the last six years of her life in LA. April deeply loved the arts, including Broadway musicals. She was a poet. She was a friend to anyone she met.
Special thanks to Linda and Howard Bloch, Nicolette Hart, David Burnham, and Telly Leung.

Broadway leading man and Glee star Matthew Morrison talked with Stage Notes host Robert Hammond about his new CD, Where it All Began. According to Morrison, this CD (the first released from Adam Levine’s new production company 222 Records) is a “dream come true.” Stand outs on the recording are “On the Street Where You Live,” “West Side Story Medley,” a jazzed up version of “Younger than Springtime,” and a duet with Smokey Robinson, “Ease on Down the Road.” Morrison’s interpretation of “Send in the Clowns” is another highlight (have tissues ready!). It’s a must buy CD!
