Remembering Leroy Anderson

Who? You know.

I bet you know the words to some of his songs already -- may have danced to some of them, too. Do you tango?
Do you type?
Ever listened to a clock?
Danced with your cat?
You know Leroy, he's great! Oh, and he pronounces it: "la - ROY", the classical way. He went to Hah-vahd you know.

He's shown here in this photo with Arthur Fiedler of the Boston Pops for whom he wrote a number of pieces. A large portion of his body of work was referred to as "light orchestral" compositions. He would appear as a guest conductor for the BP and of course conduct his own pieces.
