or The Heart and the Purse
Benny Green takes a light-hearted look at the effect on American popular music of the Eastern European Jewish immigrants of the late 19th century.
From the Hollywood studio moguls to the composers and performers of Broadway, the immigrants influenced everything from how to speak the language to how to sell the show. The results were often brilliant, usually mercenary. and always hilarious - as this programme illustrates.
Produced by STEVE ALLEN
