Podcast 751: A Conversation with Holly Foster Wells about Peggy Lee

Podcast 751 is my conversation with Peggy’s granddaughter, Holly Foster Wells, who is responsible for preserving Miss Lee’s musical legacy (and doing a fine job of it!). We talk about her memories of her famous grandmother, and talk about Miss Lee’s career in film, recording and songwriting, as well as her famous litigation with the Walt Disney Company over royalties for the home video release of “Lady and the Tramp.” Musical selections include “Old Trusty,” a track intended for “Lady and the Tramp” and now found on Peggy Lee Decca Rarities and four of her best loved tunes that can be found on the Ultimate Peggy Lee album, “I Don’t Know Enough About You,” “He’s a Tramp,” her Grammy winning “Is That All There Is?,” and for my money, the definitive version of “Black Coffee.” [Source: Straight No Chaser – A Jazz Show]
