Tonight we launched a special entitled Lunar Lunacy: One Giant Leap for Dubkind commemoratrating the 40th anniversary of 1st moon landing. From the Dub Side of the Moon album, to three versions of Walking on the Moon we travelled to the outer reaches of the known universe…in search of dub and other space funk.
Tonight’s program celebrates Bastille Day or the French Independence Day, which is July 14. The Bastille Prison was stormed on July 14, 1789, marking the end of the monarchy. Caryl and Olaf are joined by Louise Dillery who tells of her memories of July 14 when she was a girl in Paris before WWII.
The national anthem, the Marseillaise, is played in many versions while other music from the past and the present sing a variety of songs about the holiday.
