HOW THE SONG CAME TO BE

In the days of radio only, before TV, CD’s and the more modern music and video conveyances, Irving Berlin was writing songs for radio,  broadway shows and movies.  Be aware that composers can write songs which lay unpublished, sometimes until their death.  A popular, well-known singer, Kate Smith, was filling the airwaves with songs about love, but what many did not know is her dedication to patriotism and America.
