Sousa Marches by John Philip Sousa


Product ID: 1728


Director Benh Zeitlin’s film Beasts of the Southern Wild is a combination of tall tale, heartbreaking reality, and southern charm. Winner of this year’s Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and three top awards at Cannes, the film features break-out performances from new-comers Quvenzhane Wallis and Dwight Henry.

Then, when John Philip Sousa shaved his beard it made national news. He was the best known musician in the world in 1900; in some cities, his name was more widely known than even the President’s. John Philip Sousa IV joins Bob to share stories about his great-grandfather and discuss his legacy. Sousa has recently co-authored the book, John Philip Sousa’s America: The Patriot’s Life in Images and Words. [Broadcast Date: July 3, 2012]
