Shirley Jones Sings For Richard Rodgers
Shirley Jones is probably best known, at least to a certain generation, for her role as Shirley Partridge, mother of television's singing Partridge family in the early 70s. Others may remember her Oscar-winning role as Lulu in the 1960 film Elmer Gantry, or her performance as Laurey in the film version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma. Host Liane Hansen interviews the actress and singer, who recently released her newest album, a tribute to her early champion Richard Rodgers. Copyright 2011 National Public Radio.
