24 Carefully Restored And Digitally Enhanced One-Hour Long MP3s, Documenting The Normandy Landings That Began The Liberation Of Europe, June 6, 1944!
In the early morning hours of June 6th, 1944, word had reached America that the Third Reich had broadcast to the world (but not to her own people) that the Allied invasion of "Fortress Europe" had begun. No word was to be had confirming this from any Allied source. In an effort to keep the public abreast of the story as details developed, American news agencies kept an all-night vigil as they awaited confirmation of the story. This twenty four hour long mp3 audio cdrom captures these historic events as decorum is dropped in the news coverage, with CBS reporter Bob Trout leaving his announcers booth to broadcast emerging scraps of news as they came in over the wires. With tension mounting, the words America had been waiting for finally arrives - "Under the command of General Eisenhower, Allied naval forces, supported by strong air forces, began landing Allied armies this morning on the northern coast of France". There then proceeds a flood of reports from correspondants and sources both on the scene and in the loop, including Edward R. Murrow via CBS London, Herbert M. Clark by pre-written text before embarkation & more. This dramatic and unequalled moment in broadcast history is followed by all the news reporting and programming which followed on the CBS radio network up to the wee hours of the next day.

The Actual Music The Nation Listened To As News Of the Liberation Of Europe Came Across The Airwaves June 6th, 1944!
As breaking news of the Allied Landings in Normandy trickled in throughout the day, CBS executives weren't sure whether they should have the network broadcast their regularly scheduled programming with interruptions for breaking developments or whether to go all news. By early afternoon, however, they decided in fact to do neither; rather, they would play patriotic music and interrupt that with news as it came in across the Atlantic. This mp3 collection features all the music segments broadcast during D-Day. Consisting mainly of live performances by the CBS Orchestra, with a rousing half hour finale by the U.S. Navy Band, the spirit of the moment clearly shines through their performance as they, along with their fellow hopeful Americans, eagerly awaited news of their greatest adventure.
