A Vietnam Soundscape

Sep 24, 2017

During World War I, soldiers carried song books in their kit bags. In World War II, some soldiers had access to radios and could hear Glenn Miller and the Army-Air Force Band perform. Others were lucky enough to catch Bob Hope headline a USO show. During the Korean War the military set up its own radio network, Armed Forces Radio (Korea). Vietnam had all these outlets and more. Its GIs brought their own radios and instruments from home. They bought records and swapped tapes of their favorite music.

Time to Lay It Down ~ The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War is a two-part documentary special that explores the music created during the Vietnam War, which expressed the deep divisions in the U.S., and provided a life line for GIs in Vietnam, as well as a source of healing when they came home.

Tune in for this live broadcast from the Memorial Art Gallery’s Clothesline Arts Festival, or stop by and see us there!  Saturday, September 9th from 10 AM to Noon on Different Radio, WRUR. Scott Regan will be broadcasting his Open Tunings Saturday program, and will be joined by Maureen Rich, host of Road to Joy, Mike Murray of Whole Lotta' Shakin' and Jen Sally, host of In the Fold. Join us for great art and music at this year's Clothesline Arts Festival. The program will also air live on WITH, 90.1FM in Ithaca.

Music for a Solar Eclipse, Monday August 21, 2017!

On Monday, August 21 a total solar eclipse will darken the skies across the continental United States from Oregon to South Carolina. It's the first eclipse that will be seen from coast to coast in 99 years. The “Path of Totality,” where the sun appears to be completely covered, will be about 70 miles wide. Outside the Path of Totality, many of us will see a partial solar eclipse with only a portion of the sun covered by the moon.

Here in Rochester and the Finger Lakes, we will see approximately 70% coverage of the sun. The partial eclipse will last about 2½ hours, beginning at 1:14 pm and ending at 3:52 pm. The maximum coverage will be at 2:35 pm.
