KRCU Public Radio will once again air A Salute In Song For Veterans Day on Wednesday, Nov. 11 from noon to 1 p.m.

Produced by Charlie Warren, this dramatic presentation will move through the music, history, and voices of World Wars I & II, Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf War, Bosnia, Iraq, and Afghanistan in honor of America's veterans.

You'll hear songs from rock band Steppenwolf; the Navy Band's Country Current; the BBC Orchestra & Royal Air Force Band; ‘60s rock group Jefferson Airplane; the Glenn Miller Orchestra; Bette Midler; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; country music star Toby Keith; plus music from Broadway shows Phantom of the Opera, The King & I, and Hair; and a unique song about The Gulf War from a seldom heard talent.

You'll also witness the heartfelt remembrances of D-Day veterans, Vietnam DJ Adrian Cronauer, Generals Norman Schwarzkopf and Colin Powell, and the voices of Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Obama.
