An imaginary band concert, July 4, 1914

Imagine. Following the late picnic dinner with family on the green, and before the fireworks display, the bandshell next to the memorial fills with brassmen from all around. Tunes both popular and patriotic carry all the way to the courthouse on the cooling summer air.

This imaginary concert was compiled from Edison wax cylinder recordings brought to the NCPR studio by Rebecca Hopfinger of Clayton, along with a hand-painted gramophone on which to play them.  Go to full article

Listen: A Potsdam trio live in the studio with holiday music

They performed together for the first time last weekend in Potsdam, and joined us in the studio this morning for a musical holiday audio postcard. Lorie Gruneisen (violin/vocals), Don Gruneisen (drums) and Sam Whitesell (piano) are a new trio in search of a name, and having a lot of fun with favorite winter tunes. They shared arrangements of familiar Christmas music: We Three Kings/Carol of the Bells, I'll Be Home For Christmas (by SLU alum Kim Gannon) and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.  Go to full article
