I want to sing for the broadest possible audience.
My initial career, really, as a baby, was as a singer.
As a singer, the biggest joy I have are the arrangements.
Buddy Rich is one of a kind; he's a genius, and that's all there is to it.
Talking money is crass; so I'm not going to tell you what I made last year.
As regards my feelings about drummers - there's Buddy Rich, and then there's everybody else.
Because obviously the whole purpose of putting records out is purely and simply to make money.
I got into radio when I was eight, and I was one of the busiest child dramatic actors in America.
But, in fairness to them, too, the popular song per se is really a pretty shallow medium to perform in.
Because Chicago was to radio what Hollywood was to films and Broadway was to the theatre: it was the hub of radio.
