Johnny Hartman
Radio host Bill McCann will air a Johnny Hartman feature on his June 23 “Saturday Morning Edition of Jazz" show in acknowledgement of the artist's 89th birthday and an upcoming book.

Heard on WCDB 90.9FM in Albany, New York, McCann will include guests Tom Pierce and Gregg Akkerman. Piece will contribute his recollections of seeing Hartman perform before the jazz singer died in 1983 from cancer. Akkerman will feature anecdotes from his upcoming book The Last Balladeer: The Johnny Hartman Story to be released the first of July by Scarecrow Press.

Johnny Hartman is best remembered for his iconic album with saxophonist John Coltrane and as the singing voice behind many scenes in Clint Eastwood's The Bridges of Madison County. The Hartman feature will air between 9 and 11 a.m. and be streamed via the Internet through the station's web site.
