9/15      Nineteen Nineteen  It wasn’t just the year after the War, it was also the beginning of what would become the Roaring Twenties. On Broadway, Florenz Ziegfeld hired Irving Berlin to write the entire score for his new Follies, the first time Ziegfeld had bet everything on one writer. Berlin didn’t disappoint him. It was one of the great Follies in a year of outstanding popular songs.
