"Ten Cents A Dance"
A hit song by the songwriting team of Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart. The tune chronicles the trails of working-class women in the early days of the Great Depression. The vocal is of a "taxi dancer" at a dance hall who takes on all male customers for a dime. One of the many poignant tumes from this era. It also inspired a 1931 movie starring Barbara Stanwyck.
Conducted by Leonard Joy
