> FATS WALLER: IF YOU GOTTA ASK
>
> One-hour music intensive documentary about Fats Waller, one of America's
> great composers and performers of the 20th century. His songs, stride
> piano style and on-stage and on-screen antics were legendary and made
> him one of the first African-American superstars.  Pianist/composer Dick
> Hyman is the host.
>
> Count Basie sat at his feet to learn, Art Tatum considered Fats the
> best, and Waller's stride style influenced Louis Armstrong, Duke
> Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck and many others. Strangely
> enough, two things happened to Fats after he died: he essentially
> disappeared from our culture's memory for over 30 years, and when he was
> talked about, it centered around his clowning and humor, which was
> sorely misunderstood.
>
> Despite his untimely death, Fats Waller spent nearly every day of his
> short life making the music he loved. In that time, he created a rich,
> prolific legacy that today is justly revered. Whether you're a musician,
> a jazz scholar, or just someone who likes to sing along to "Honeysuckle
> Rose," you know Fats Waller is one of the all-time greats.
>
> Host: Dick Hyman
> Producer: Joyride Media - Paul Chuffo & Joshua Jackson
> Broadcast Window: Begins late September 2006
> Length: One-hour, with breaks for local spots (no built-in barter spots)
> Terms: Available for all USA radio broadcasters at no cost
