Fwd: The Massachusetts Observer





The Massachusetts Observer


America and American Defined

Posted: 15 Nov 2013 06:49 AM PST


Massachusetts Observer Radio presents programs from the past that shine light on the present.

Our program today is from the series called "The Free Company." In 1941, a group of American actors, writers, musicians - a whole production company volunteered their services and talents to produce a program about America and Democracy. The Columbia Broadcasting System, CBS, joined with them.

Today's episode is titled "The People with Light Coming Out of Them." It's the story of an American neighborhood - perhaps best summed up by the Latin phrase E Pluribus Unum - "out of many, one." Out of many states, a great nation, a single nation is formed; and out of many backgrounds (races, religions, ethnicities) what it means to be an American is defined.

For your consideration and, we hope, inspiration, Massachusetts Observer Radio presents "The First Company" and the episode titled, "The People with Light Coming Out of Them." (Please click on the title).
