Description: 

Composer Kay Swift (1897 - 1993), the first woman to score a complete musical (1930's <i>Fine and dandy</i>), recounts her life. She talks about her early love of opera and how she was able to break into Broadway. She talks about how she came to collaborate with George and Ira Gershwin and the ballet she composed for George Balanchine, <i>Alma mater</i>, and how she left behind the Broadway life to run away to a ranch in Oregon. Swift reads excerpts from her 1940 memoir <i>Who could ask for anything more?</i>. Recordings of some of Swift's compositions are interwoven throughout the interview. Produced by Judith Sherman.
