Join us on this Path Through History visit as The Woodlawn Cemetery & Conservancy celebrates two of the greatest performers from 100 years ago and their indelible musical contributions to jazz, and vaudeville history. Our tour is led by Michael Cumella (aka Phonograph DJ MAC), host of The Antique Phonograph Music Program and Centennial Songs on WFMU since 1995. MAC is the creator of the Phonograph DJ concept and is active in the live presentation of pre-electric 78rpm records on crank-up gramophones. Visit the final resting places and learn the history of vaudeville and musical great George M. Cohan, writer of iconic songs like "Give My Regards to Broadway," "You're a Grand Old Flag" and many more, and jazz pioneer Joseph King Oliver. Listen as MAC plays their music on his gramophone and enjoy the history of these Woodlawn greats.
