Music Special

Monday 8:00 PM -9:00 PM

Montana Public Radio airs a one-hour music special or music documentary program each week from local and national producers.

As part of Missoula's 2014 Big Read project, two music scholars, Doug Bradley and Hugo Keesing, share their insights with "Folk Show" host John Myers on what American popular and folk music of the 1960s and 1970s can tell us about the Vietnam War.

This month on You Must Remember This, 7:30-8:30pm: host Allen Secher is not sitting on his laurels; he's going places. "Let's Get Away From It All," "Kalamazoo," "San Francisco," "Chicago," and "New York, New York" are just the start of this road trip.

You Must Remember This is hosted by Allen Secher and airs the first Monday of each month as a Monday Music Special, 7:30 - 8:30pm.

This month on You Must Remember This, 7:30-8:30pm: through songs and interviews with the young Frank Sinatra, host Allen Secher reminds us of the phenomenon of the 1930s and 1940s known as Sinatramania. "Would you believe that in 1940, Frank Sinatra was as big as the Beatles or Elvis in their time, or any rock star you can name today?" Or as the New York Herald Tribune put it: "It is a slightly disturbing spectacle to witness the almost synchronized screams that come from the audience as he closes his eyes, or moves his body slightly sideways."

For the last thirty years, recording engineer and production coordinator Toby Scott has been recording and archiving Bruce Springsteen's concert and studio sessions, lending his skills to nearly every Springsteen project since Darkness On the Edge of Town.
