American Popular Song may not be rock, but thousands of rock songs are popular song. It is not country, but the biggest country hits usually become popular song. These are the standards, the songs you know, the songs you’ve forgotten but remember immediately when you hear the chorus.
Welcome back to another great event of our Society! We hope you all had a wonderful time earlier this month with Ben Yagoda and The B Side: The Death of Tin Pan Alley and the Rebirth of the Great American Song produced by Tom Toce. Now we are preparing for our January event. Aren’t we fortunate that Julie Budd is going to spend a very special afternoon (with a very special surprise guest!)? This will be a program truly not to be missed.
Times change and so is American Popular Song Society (formerly The New York Sheet Music Society), and if we are to attract the next generation of members, the new name will help us do this. Over the years, we have concentrated more on our programs and entertainment and less about collecting sheet music.
We do not in any way want to erase 35+ years of our great history and our new website www.americanpopularsongsociety.org will have our past newsletters, great guests and programs. We are looking forward to an exciting season ahead as we move into the future! Linda Amiel Burns, President
