Rebroadcast: Interview With Singer Andy Williams

We present a special rebroadcast of Diane Rehm's 2009 interview with legendary singer Andy Williams. He died Tuesday night after a year-long battle with bladder cancer at the age of 84.

Andy Williams was known for classics such as "Moon River" and his album "Days of Wine and Roses" spent 16 weeks at the top of the U.S. music charts.

"The Andy Williams Show," a weekly television variety program that ran for nine years on NBC starting in 1962, and a dozen TV specials from 1959 through 1987 made Williams a household name in the United States.
