“Big Apple” song by Bob Emmerich
[Bob Emmerich introduces:I'm gonna play you the greatest collection of "Emmerichopedia" ever collected in one single place. These are all songs of mine recorded over the years, and I'll let you know what they are as we go along. First, "The Big Apple," by Tommy Dorsey's band, with Edith Wright on the vocals. Tommy does a little vocalizing, and if you listen real close, Bob Emmerich is at the piano.]

Listen: The Big Apple (mp3)
