The Nightside with Andy O'

"Only a Dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The seeds that his father did for him.
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, But the best of men."
written by Edgar Albert Guest

In celebration of Fathers Day, The Nightside with Andy O' presents "Songs for the Fathers - Poetry and Jazz in the Family," including Nat Cole and Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable" duet, as well as Dave Brubeck and sons, Ellis Marsalis and sons, and many more.
