Welcome to The Picture Section,
a relatively quiet collection of songs inspired by photos in the Chicago Sunday Tribune “Picture Section” from September 9, 1945.
To watch one of the songs, scroll down and select its photo.
The “Picture Section” magazine was part of the Chicago Sunday Tribune on September 9, 1945. I discovered a copy at the Symphony Book Fair in New Orleans, and was inspired to write songs for each of the photos in the magazine. Seven of those songs are in this collection.
For example, this is page 10 of the magazine. The song “When You Don’t Hear From Me” was inspired by the outlined photo.
