Happy Independence Day, as is appropriate for Independence Day this episode
features audio of the Voices of Liberty
and the Spirit of America Fife and Drum Corps. The songs of the Voices of
Liberty were taken from several sets I recorded on Saturday June 16 and
Sunday June 17 2007. If it seeems a bit disjointed remember that the
Voices of Liberty usually start and end each
set with a patriotic songs and do other "Americana"
songs in the middle of the
set accordingly, most of these songs are openers or closers, and this show
was edited to together from those.
The Spirit of America Fife
and Drum corp audio was recorded in one go, and as they finished playing
I walked into the American Adventure pavilion and yhe part where I talk after
they finish playing really is from that same recording though I adjusted down
the background noise then brought up the Volume at the end where I talked to
Lonnie I also cut out some "dead air" where I was done with the Yankee
Doodle monologe yet there still was some time before anyone spoke.
All the Voices of Liberty songs in the first half of the show
(before the Fife and Drum Corp) were recorded Sunday June 17, 2007, while the
songs after the Fife and Drum section were the ones recorded the
previous day (Saturday).
Above Libsyn and Itunes image: I was a bit rushed putting this show
together (due to nothing interesting just my work schedule), and so used
this image of Lonnie, for both the iunes image as well as the one over
on the libsyn blog. Lonnie is one of the most knowledgable cast members you'll ever
meet, friendly and always willing to answer questions, or point out interesting
things on display around the pavilion he's a great
resource at the American Adventure pavilion.
