Tonight we hear one of Studs Terkel’s favorite programs, one in which he wove together stories and remembrances of war as described through words and music. He first presented this commemoration in November 1960 and we rebroadcast it in honor of the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day and the end of World War I.
