We've got two hours on the air this week. In hour one, starting at 6 PM pdt we'll be remembering Gil Scott-Heron who died a few days ago at 62. He was one of the most influential politically conscious musicians of the last 40 years, creating a unique synthesis of spoken word, jazz and funk. We'll play a number of his memorable performances including tracks from his long awaited recent CD which came out not long before his death.
and in hour two:
Memorial Day just passed, and the aniversary of D-Day is just ahead. A great way to observe this conjunction is to listen to the great radio program by Norman Corwin called "On a note of triumph"-- a program heard by 60 million Americans in 1945 when the war in Europe ended. It's a masterpiece of poetry and sound that explores the meaning of the 'good war' and the hope for a new world in its aftermath.
