Great American Songbook Competition on Song Travels - follow-up

I've heard back from the producing station of Song Travels. Here's what they said...

The Great American Songbook Competition has so far not been highlighted on Song Travels with Michael Feinstein. Do not know of future plans to showcase it on the program. Given Michael Feinstein's involvement with the competition there is the possibility.

A big thanks for airing Song Travels with Michael Feinstein!

John Gasque
Operations Manager/Program Director we can still hope they highlight this competition in the future.

Great American Songbook Competition on Song Travels

Dear Steve,

We do not produce Song Travels here in Rochester; but I have sent your question along to the producing station. As soon as I hear a firm answer on this, I'll pass it along. As far as I know, this first round of 13 programs has featured stars who have taken songs from the Great American Songbook and presented them in new ways to make them fresh and their own. The competition to which you refer brings the Great American Songbook to a new generation of high school students. Perhaps your question will prompt them to include some of this in upcoming programs. (We've just learned that a new 13-week season of Song Travels is in production.) Stay tuned!
