Wind and Rhythm: Happy B-Day USA

How do you celebrate Independence Day? With hot dogs and a baseball game? Sunscreen and swimming pools? What about patriotic music and a slice of apple pie?

This week on Wind & Rhythm we say “Happy Birthday to the USA," right here at the gathering place for people who love band music.

Listen Friday at 8 p.m. or Sunday at noon on Classical IPR.
