From our archives, we are proud to present the Peabody Award winning series, American Popular Song with Alec Wilder and Friends, originally produced and broadcast by ETV Radio in 1976. American Poular Song with Alec Wilder and Friends offers listeners hour-long programs of conversation and performance  in which the renowned American composer and songwriter, along with co-host and fellow-songwriter Loonis McGlohon, celebrate this American art form with some of its very best interpreters.

Mabel Mercer, Teddi King, Johnny Harman, Tony Bennett and Barbara Lea are just a few of the artists performing songs of Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Jimmy Van Heusen, Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Burton Lane, and Vernon Duke, among others.
