Swing Ladies Swing: Margaret Whiting, Part One

Amanda Wilde

As a singer on the rise in the 1940s and 50s, Margaret Whiting introduced some of the greatest pop standards of all time, such as Moonlight In Vermont and Come Rain Or Come Shine. This week, 81-year-old Whiting will talk about her rise to stardom, her long association with friend, mentor, and songwriting legend Johnny Mercer, and how the music of the postwar era continues to direct her life today. KUOW’s Amanda Wilde interviewed Whiting in November of 2005 at her home in New York City.
