TRR: Episode 45, “The Street Singer’s Romance”

The tenor Arthur Tracy was popular in the 1920’s and 30’s, going by the name of “The Street Singer.” His version of “Pennies From Heaven” was chosen from among hundreds for the soundtrack of the 1981 film of the same name. Tracy had one true love, but their relationship was complicated by the fact that she was trapped in a loveless marriage.
