The Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial team looks forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming appearances.
Royal Oak, June 15, 7:00 pm. Join friends of The Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial as we celebrate the The Music of WWII.
During the war, most of our troops had access to the radio. Along with the Armed Forces Radio Service, the U.S.O., the Hollywood Canteen, “buddy kit” phonographs and “V” records, the home front did what it could to lift the spirits of U.S. servicemen and women at home and abroad.
Join music historian Stu Johnson as he travels back in time to the music of WWII. Hear the sounds of jazz greats and the songs that touched the G.I.’s hearts, connecting with their feelings of hope, longing, loneliness and love. Discover how music played a vital role in victory.
Stu Johnson is a past member of the Michigan Jazz Record Collectors. Ten years ago he began to give presentations throughout the metro area, giving over 100 talks, sharing his knowledge and love of historical music.
Hope to see you there! All are welcome. Be sure to invite friends.
