One thought on “Martin Luther King, Jr.: ‘A Musical Celebration’

  1. Bob Marshburn says:

    I want to tell my connection at WDAV how much I got out the airing of the “Beautiful Symphony of Brotherhood” tonight. A wonderful connection between music (of all types: gospel, jazz, etc.) and the Freedom movement of the ’60s. The program picked up on MLK’s life intertwined with music in a flowing manner. The tears flowed with “We Shall Overcome” and Odetta’s voice, and as always, when the Reverend intoned his beautiful lines from “I have a dream…” and “…been to the Mountaintop”. I think I’m now ready for Obama’s spell-binding tomorrow!
    Thanks to Boss Ben et al. for bringing us this special program.
