Memorial Day

Today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is very Amer­i­can-cen­tric in hon­or of the Amer­i­can hol­i­day of Memo­r­i­al Day.

Memo­r­i­al Day 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.

In today’s pro­gram 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.


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.
