Legendary Performers
Some performers are simply born great. It is their combination of talent and charisma which makes them legendary. Neil Ritchie examines what makes a performer great and looks at how, besides talent, their early lives, family, education, career choices, mentoring, integrity, musicality, direction, timing, and, of course, luck impacted their careers. Spend some time with each of them enjoying their music and learning about their often complicated personal lives.  

Sept 10. Judy Garland

She died in 1969 at the age of 47 but her talents are more impressive than ever


Sept 17. Gordon Lightfoot

A Canadian icon who wrote many classic tunes and performed tirelessly despite a difficult personal life


Sept 24. Thelonious Monk

A quirky pianist who wrote so many jazz standards that are part of the basic repertoire to this day.


Oct 1. Leonard Bernstein

Conductor, pianist, composer and charismatic celebrity.


Oct 8. Hermes Pan

Oct 15. Anita O'Day

Indisputably the greatest white jazz singer of them all.  A distinctive voice and effortless style.
