The storyline of the Songbook show was originally created by the late great pioneer of progressive FM radio and author, Pete Fornatale. Now emceeing the show and featured on narration, along with creating the Songbook’s slideshow, is Fornatale's protégé, WCWP radio host and Long Island Hall of Fame co-founder Tony Traguardo. Laughter and nostalgia abound, and a sing a-long is always in the mix.
