Happy Birthday to jazz icon Cab Calloway, who would be turning 103 this Saturday, December 25th! To celebrate, Michelle explores Cab’s legend and the Jazz Age – alive and well in New York City (and on a new hit HBO show). We promise, even if you’ve never heard of Cab, you won’t want to miss this episode.
