Great Music - Pgm 143
Here’s an obscure Armed Forces Radio Service program, “Great Music”, giving GIs fifteen minutes of short classical works. Program 143 in the series is hosted by Walter Huston. The first selection is the overture to “Ruslan and Lyudmila” by Glinka. Also heard is a two-piano duet by Amparo and José Iturbi.
The show was digitized direct from an original 16” Armed Forces Radio Service transcription.
Again, my thanks to blog listener William Harris for his donation of the disc to the collection.
