A Salute In Song

A Salute In Song For Memorial Day

Airs Thursday, May 24 at 11:00 a.m. Starting with the Civil War, which spurred the eventual creation of Memorial Day, we present an objective, nostalgic, entertaining, and respectful music/sound chronicle of America’s war history. This program is highlighted by music of the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World Wars I & II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf, touching also on Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan.  It documents our country’s strife over our entry into some wars, but respectfully acknowledges the hardships of combat, and honors our fighting men and women who have given the ultimate.
You’ll witness moments of entertainment and nostalgia with the U.S. Air Force Band, The Navy Band and Country Current, the BBC Orchestra & Royal Air Force Band, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Canadian Brass, Bette Midler; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Mitch Miller; Steppenwolf; Joan Baez; Jefferson Airplane; plus music from top Broadway shows such as The King & I, Bloomer Girls, Hair, Phantom of the Opera, and songs from talented unknowns.  You'll hear the heartfelt remembrances of Army and Air Force veterans, including Generals Norman Schwarzkopf and Colin Powell, and the voices of Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, George H. W. Bush, Clinton, and Obama.
