A TRIBUTE TO POLISH MUSIC THROUGH THE CENTURIES
The Warsaw Uprising of 1944 — a heroic and tragic 63-day struggle to liberate World War 2 Warsaw from Nazi/German occupation. Undertaken by the Home Army (Armia Krajowa, AK), the Polish resistance movement, at the time Allied troops were breaking through the Normandy defenses and the Red Army was standing at the line of the Vistula River. Warsaw could have been one of the first European capitals liberated; however, various military and political miscalculations, as well as global politics — played among Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) — turned the dice against it.

 

I will be presenting four special programs of Polish music in observance of the seventieth anniversary of this tragic event.

I have always been interested in Polish music, and have presented specials as well regularly on my programs. See the playlists: >>>

I am lucky to have a Polish born webmaster and have visited the country twice.
This is is my personal tribute to this wonderful country and it's resilient people.
