Radio Free London Podcasts

Radio Free London is a late night radio show on CHRW, the campus radio station of Western University in London, Ontario, Canada.
Monday mornings, 2am til 6am ET.

This week on Radio Free London for November 12th

➡️ Commemorating Remembrance Day on the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War (which was what it was called before WW II).


➡️ Tonight we go to church (and start at 12am).

➡️ Here's how it went down. Every year I go to a Cenotaph in my neighourhood to commemorate Remembrance Day. It is the oldest Cenotaph in the city. Usually a few folks show up, a fellow plays 'Last Post' over the radio of his van, we observe a minute of silence.

Afterwards, I was chatting with the only person in uniform and he told me that there was a concert at 3pm with the theme 'Music of 1918'.

How could I resist not recording something like this!

The concert was held at Church of the Epiphany and it was more than just music. There was also commentary, readings and, yes, some prayer.

➡ The rest of this long show will be devoted to music and spoken word along the theme of war.

Lest we forget.

Check back here for Parts 2 & 3.
