Gramophoney Baloney – Marching on through March!

Sunday, March 11

Sound reproductions from ca.1910-1949 – as the season of spring continues to sprong forth, D.J. McSchmormac ushers in Daylight Saving Time, even less well-slept than usual, and makes March the month of march awareness, with a composition from John Philip Sousa “The March King” mixed up with some Greek, Ottoman-Armenian, Tanganyikan, Japanese, Russian, Catalonian, Brazilian, Romanian, American music and more! PODCAST HERE.
