Hey all, if you're looking for one-hour programs for Memorial Day or the 4th of July, we've posted a couple of Afterglow shows--5-seg, 59:00 with news cutaway option and midpoint music bed--on PRX.  The first, "The Year We Won the War," looks at 1945 through music, news clips, and interviews with historian Jim Madison and a couple of American homefront civilians:

"Born On the 4th of July:  a Popular-Song Celebration of Independence Day" features music from Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Paul Robeson, Margaret Whiting, Duke Ellington, and others--a more straight-ahead music program with a little bit of background on some of the songs:


Happy summer holidays to all,
