Memorial Day

Today on Radio Riel’s Main stream we present music in hon­or of the Amer­i­can Memo­r­i­al Day hol­i­day. You will hear pop­u­lar music from the eras of the Civ­il War, the Great War (World War I) and World War II, as well as mil­i­tary march­es and well known songs that were writ­ten for, and dur­ing, the wars them­selves.

This hol­i­day began as “Dec­o­ra­tion Day”, a day to hon­or the sol­ders that were killed dur­ing the US Civ­il War, also known as the War Between the States. It became Memo­r­i­al Day, a hol­i­day to cel­e­brate all slain sol­diers from all wars after World War I.

Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er . If you are in the Unit­ed States, please use the fol­low­ing link: .
