RIP Bob Dorough, “Schoolhouse Rock” singer

Recommended Posts




Word comes late this afternoon that Arkansas native Bob Dorough died today, at age 94. The jazz pianist and arranger from Cherry Hill (Polk County) was responsible for some of the most beloved tunes on the cartoon series "Schoolhouse Rock!," as well as decades of original material, collaborations with Sugar Ray Robinson, Blossom Dearie and Nellie McKay.

One of the voices of my youth. He was composer/performer for over half of the original School House Rocks of the 70s (and a few more in the 90s-2000s).


Thank you Bob.
