Extra: Johnny Mercer

Celebrate the Mercer centennial closer to home.


In Macon, Georgia Music Hall of Fame is staging the special exhibit “Johnny Mercer: Too Marvelous for Words” through June 2010.

The library at Georgia State University, which holds the Johnny Mercer Collection in its popular music archives, is hosting a two-day academic conference on popular music of Mercer’s era (November 14-15) along with films and a concert.

Without even getting of the couch, you can soak in Atlanta-based Turner Classic Movie’s “24 Hours of Mercer” on November 18.
