From the Library: Music from My Father, Part II

Last week, I played a pro­gram called “Music from my Father” which con­sist­ed of music tak­en direct­ly from my father’s music library. All of the music from last week’s pro­gram was clas­si­cal music, from the Baroque to Roman­tic eras.

This week, I am proud to present Part II of this pro­gram, which focus­es on Jazz, Pop­u­lar Stan­dards from the ear­ly to mid 20th Cen­tu­ry, as well as a healthy dose of Blue­grass and Cow­boy songs! I remem­ber sit­ting with my Dad, when I was about 12, watch­ing old Roy Rogers movies. He was a huge fan of those movies and the music that they con­tained.

To me, my Dad will always be the Cow­boy with the White Hat.

Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://main.radioriel.org . Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Alexan­dri­an Free Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Con­sor­tium mem­bers in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Alexan­dri­an Free Library web­site, or one of their branch­es in-world.
