great war declaration

One hun­dred years ago last week, Eng­land and France declared war on Ger­many, there­by com­menc­ing what became known as The Great War.

To mark the cen­te­nary of “the war to end all wars”, today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s main stream fea­tures the music of that era. You will hear pop­u­lar music from The Great War Era, mil­i­tary march­es, poems of The Great War and audio clips from the war, as well as those of mem­o­ries of those who served.

Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. If you are in the Unit­ed States, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. To lis­ten from out­side of the Unit­ed States, click here to start your play­er .
