D-Day: 80 years ago to the day & “The Watch”

Take 4 minutes of your day to watch this stirring rendition of “The Watch”

Tuesday, June 6, 1944. 80 years ago today.

The Normandy Landings of the Allied invasion of Normandy remains the largest seaborne invasion in history. Today, we honor the 24,000 American, British and Canadian airborne troops that helped begin the liberation of France, and the rest of Western Europe, and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.

Part of the commemoration earlier in Normandy, France, was an emotional reading of “The Watch” by a younger service member to all of the World War II veterans present at the ceremony. Chills.

I love music. It’s really what got me into radio to begin with. You should see my record collection: from Michael Jackson and Elton John, to Led Zeppelin and The Stones, to old school hip-hop and dance music ... (Well you get the idea!)
