Remembering 9/11: Songs Picked By Our Listeners

Monday, September 05, 2011

Today we're starting a week-long series in remembrance of 9/11, ten years later. Our co-producer, WNYC, asked listeners what music they would like to hear, as they think about the events of ten years ago. Something comforting, to celebrate being American and a New Yorker? Thousands of listeners weighed in. We're playing some of the songs our listeners picked, and hearing about the selections from WNYC's Chris Bannon and Kathleen Ehrlich. What songs would you suggest? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.

The guidelines seek to remind Americans that many other nations around the globe have faced terrorist attacks of their own in the last 10 years, while underscoring themes of public service and remembrance. The document, which was forwarded to all federal agencies, also highlights what the government has done to prevent another terrorist attack.
