Snoopycat: A-Side - Airs Dec 4th

Snoopycat: The Adventures of Marian Anderson's Cat Snoopy by Marian Anderson
Legendary contralto Marian Anderson repeatedly broke the race barrier in classical music, most notably when she performed on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in 1939 after being refused a concert spot at Constitution Hall. But she also loved her cat. This is her cat Snoopy’s story, 14 tales written with Frida Sarsen-Bucky and narrated and sung by Anderson. Released in 1963 on Folkways Records.
