Jan Hus - special edition



Old town square of Prague
Originally uploaded by decafinata.
Yes, it's Jan Hus Day. The Czech Republic celebrates its religious heroes on July 5 and 6. Cyril and Methodius have to share the 5th, but Master Hus has the 6th all to himself. And, since it seemed like a good nationalistic holiday to celebrate with music, I'll be broadcasting a special pastiche of music and words in honor of Jan Hus and Czech legends. It will feature music from Smetana's Má vlast, and text from The Little Czech and the Great Czech Nation by Ladislav Holy, Václav Havel, and my favorite eminent musicologist. Tune in for some Czech fun on American radio, broadcast live at wcbn.org at about 9:30 a.m. (CET, Brno time).*

Don't miss it!

*Yes, that's 3:30 a.m. EST.

ah, bohuzel! But I'll be doing the show every Friday until the end of August, so there are lots of chances still.

Let me know if you have any ideas or requests.
