On Saturday September 12th at 1:30, John Hauger will give a presentation on the music of WWI. John will review a little history of “the Great War” and play some of these records and recall the artists who made them. The summer of 1914 was calm and idyllic. No one could have predicted the changes to the entire world that would soon take place. Music was very much a part of this war. Songs were composed to encourage people to join the war effort as well as to protest it. Although radio was still a few years off as a source of public entertainment, the phonograph was in its heyday. War music poured out of record stores and on to the phonographs in homes and recruiting stations on both sides of the Atlantic. In our program, Music of WWI, we hope to review a little history of “The Great War” and hear some of these records and remember the artists who made them.
