Sound and Story – The Ritz, Newburgh

This is the second piece I produced for Eileen McAdam’s Newburgh Beacon Audio Adventure Tour, part of the Sound and Story Project of the Hudson Valley. In this segment, long-time Newburgh resident Kathleen Gill talks about how Newburgh used to be a vibrant arts center, and all the stars who performed at the Ritz in its heyday. Make sure you visit the link below and listen to Ms. Gill talk about the time she performed at the Ritz as a little girl. She’s a charmer!

What famous couple made their debut here in 1940?
