Bob Dorough

The great Bob Dorough, composer of Blue Xmas, many beloved Schoolhouse Rock tunes, and loads of other cleverness, has died at the ripe old age of 94.

This is my favorite Bob Dorough song, performed by Blossom Dearie.

And here’s Bob himself singing one of his lovely Schoolhouse Rock tunes.


Fresh Air has a wonderful episode of past interviews with Dorough, including lots of music.

May he rest in a peace as peaceful as his cool, soothing voice.
