Columbia’s WKCR Launches ‘New York Sings Along’ With Local Choir

April 22, 2020

Every night at 7:00 pm New Yorkers have come to expect the sound of clapping and cheers to ring out across the city as a well-earned thank you to frontline workers. Then last Thursday the applause gave way to singing as thousands of people across the city, the U.S. and the world performed Frank Sinatra’s classic, “Theme from New York, New York.”

They sang from their apartment windows, their terraces and even the sidewalks. WKCR (89.9 FM), Columbia University’s 75-year-old campus radio station, broadcast the song live on-air and via a live stream on its website.
