Historical Figures


Albert Bierstadt The Landing of Columbus


It's Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples' Day. That gives us the opportunity to reflect on historical figures and events. What are some of your favorite songs that do that? Make a request and we'll spin a set after 9 a.m.

Here's what we played:

Bruce Cockburn "Kit Carson"

Suzanne Vega "World Before Columbus"

Jill Sobule "Heroes"

Graham Parker "I Discovered America"
