From the Library: Music of the 30s and 40s

Today’s pro­gramme offers a broad selec­tion of music from the decades encom­pass­ing the Sec­ond World War. There is inevitably a focus on pieces from the war years them­selves, but not exclu­sive­ly; you’ll hear a won­der­ful col­lec­tion of heart-warm­ing bal­lads, songs from the shows, and the sound of Big Band at its peak, with intri­cate, detailed arrange­ments – the char­ac­ter­is­tic sound of the era – from both sides of the Atlantic. Enjoy!

The pro­gramme today is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in asso­ci­a­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at

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.
