Leap Year Day!! Big Bill Broonzy, Seeger, Seals & Crofts, McCartney, Coldplay
Original air date February 29, 2020 | Time 59:00
It was a real surprise to find a song by the American blues musician Big Bill Broonzy called "Leap Year Blues". An old tradition for leap year day is that women are allowed to propose marriage to a man, which used to be unimaginable and socially unacceptable! Broonzy says it's time for her to pay the bills... If you live to be 80 years old you'll only see this unusual day 20 times, so let's celebrate and make the most of it. Seals & Crofts wrote "Today" and features some of the most beautiful mandoline playing I've ever heard.
