Journal of Gospel Music Editor-in-Chief Bob Marovich (pictured, left), discussed his book, A City Called Heaven: Chicago and the Birth of Gospel Music (University of Illinois Press), with radio legend Milt Rosenberg (center) on The Milt Rosenberg Show. The program aired live Friday, November 6, 2015, on WCGO 1590 AM, Chicago.
Iconic gospel choir conductor, arranger, and Mahalia Jackson accompanist Dr. Charles Clency (right) joined us for a lively and informative discussion of gospel music as it was birthed from, and prospered in, Chicago. Musical highlights included selections from many of Chicago’s golden greats!
So grateful for the opportunity to be a guest of Milt Rosenberg, who has interviewed everyone from Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.
