Come to Harvey’s evening with Alyn Shipton and Cab Calloway

Harvey Cohen will appear at the Royal Academy of Music’s Concert Room tonight (29 November) at 6PM, interviewing author, historian and broadcaster Alyn Shipton about his new book Hi-De-Ho: The Life of Cab Calloway, out now on Oxford University Press. Lost in CCI has been informed that some Calloway recorded classics will be featured, and that alcoholic refreshments will follow. Feel free to bring along your Hepster’s Dictionary, the legendary compendium of 1930s Harlem slang that Calloway first published in 1938.
