Wednesday, July 08, 2009

On the 85th anniversary of the launch of WNYC, David Garland hosts an evening that gives our live, web and radio audience a glimpse into the birth-year of our station, 1924. Combining music, film and chat, the evening explores iconic, epoch-defining pieces of music from 1924, including George Antheil’s Ballet Mechanique, George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, Giacomo Puccini’s Turandot, and Jelly Roll Morton’s Big Foot Ham and Bucktown Blues.
