This radio special features Leroy Anderson, America’s most popular light music composer, and the Boston Pops Orchestra, which premiered many of his short orchestral miniatures. This special explores how the two came together to make music that will be remembered for generations.

Leroy Anderson’s music, including Bugler’s Holiday, Fiddle-Faddle and The Typewriter, are heard with the Boston Pops Orchestra, with conductor Keith Lockhart playing host.  Also heard are Anderson’s classic Boston Pops arrangements of George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers and Meredith Willson.  Seiji Ozawa, John Williams and Leroy Anderson all comment on the music.

Leroy Anderson and the Boston Pops is produced by Kurt Anderson, the composer’s son, and is distributed by the WFMT Radio Network to radio stations nationwide free of charge to all stations.  Kurt has produced three other public radio special programs on Leroy Anderson that were distributed by National Public Radio and WFMT.  This program is underwritten in part by the Leroy Anderson Foundation.
