This is an Encore of a series I did back in 2006, when the 4th Of July fell on Tuesday, the day my radio show is broadcast.
Therefore, add 5 years and this is our great country’s 235th Birthday.
So let the musical Celebration Of America begin!
And a, shall we say…surprising beginning it will be.
Come Monday, those 235 years ago, the greatest document ever written, the Declaration Of Independence, was adopted by the Continental Congress.
With the singer/songwriters and poets of our songs we will take a broad look at the U.S.A.- warts and all.
And I should point out, ALL songs played in this series, and there will be 4 parts, will have the word “AMERICA” in them!
We will be patriotic, but not always warm and fuzzy- confronting some issues that may make our nation less than perfect.
But who is perfect? Certainly no other countries are.
Happy Birthday America!
Keep on rockin’ in the free world!
