He has recorded for Capitol Records, performed on the Bob Hope Show, appeared in motion pictures and toured with the Alvino Rey Orchestra during the Big Band era.

William Graham Does Tin Pan Alley to Broadway featuring the great American popular songs of the 1920s, '30s and '40s, songs by Berlin, Porter, Gershwin, Mercer, Carmichael and other giants of America's popular music of the "Golden Age." William Graham's anecdotes about the writing of the songs and his personal experiences in show business during the era, bring the songs to life.

Cole Porter, One of a Kind features one of America's premiere artists, Cole Porter, portrayed by William Graham. Set in 1954 in Porter's country estate, it is an evening of conversation and song with the famous Broadway composer and lyricist. Performance includes songs from more than 20 of Porter's musicals.

Heavenly Cole, Cole Porter in Concert is William Graham's portrayal of Cole Porter as an angel. Because he is afraid his music is being forgotten, Porter returns to earth to give concerts. Tongue-in-cheek he talks about St. Peter and his new friends in heaven, Louis Armstrong, Freddi Chopin and Jack Puccini. He reminisces about his life on earth as a playboy and his experiences in the musical theatre and motion pictures.
