“The Name’s LaGuardia” – Fiorello!

Music: Jerry Bock   Lyrics: Sheldon Harnick

The New York Municipal Airport/LaGuardia Field opened on this day in 1939.  Named after New York City’s famous mayor, the subject of this musical, the title was eventually shortened to simply LaGuardia Airport, as it is known today.  In this number, the spunky LaGuardia tells of how he will rid the city of political corruption.
