What, you still haven’t OD’d on Johnny Mercer during this seemingly unending centennial year? Then here’s another night during which to revel in the master’s words (usually) and music (sometimes). Mercer won’t be on hand to celebrate the actual day 100 years ago on which he was born (he did do the series decades ago) but Mercer historian Robert Kimball will be present with Charles Osgood, the amazing Tedd Firth on piano, and Mercer-steeped singers. No, not Ella Mae Morse or Jo Stafford.
