Ginger Rogers at 100!

Ginger Rogers in Stage Door 1937. (That’s the film – not the radio show!)

Today’s Stage Door was all about celebrating the fabulous of one of the most versatile actresses of all time – Ginger Rogers.  A success on Broadway, Hollywood and even London she was praised for musicals, straight drama and was also a celebrated sculptor & painter.

Let’s let the music do the talking.  Here is a list of the tracks we played that either feature Ginger on her own, with Fred or interpretations by others.
