This audio only interview was conducted for a radio program by Dan Del Fiorentino and donated to the NAMM Oral History program: Burton Lane studied classical music in New York and had the opportunity to listen to George Gershwin playing the piano at his family home while still a teenager. The encounter encouraged young Burton to pursue a career as a songwriter. His incredible output as a composer resulted in Broadway musicals such as "Finian's Rainbow" and "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever." Among his most recognizable hit songs were "Old Devil Moon," and "Too Late Now."
