George and Ira Gershwin

2/20      Episode # 2108

George and Ira in 1937. Irving Berlin said that nobody ever wrote better songs in a single year than the Gershwins in 1937. The irony is that this was the last year they worked together. George died of a brain aneurism in July, but the songs from that year are an important part of the Gershwins' legacy.
