Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (November 11, 2017)

This year’s celebration of Veteran’s Day is special because 100 years ago (this year), the United States entered World War I. This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion therefore honors our veterans by airing music written during or popular during World War I—or the Great War, as it is often called. In recognition of other wars, we have not been able to air recordings made during or near the war being recognized. But World War I is different. So be prepared on today’s edition for we’ll hear some recordings that don’t match our normal expectations of sound quality because they are 100 years old or close to it, made during or close to World War I.
