This eclectic film series is all about music – how it began, who wrote it, who performed it, what it meant to us. You’ll go from coast-to- coast, genre to genre, memory to memory, and we bet you’ll know the words to almost all the songs. It’s the history of the music of our life. The series is generously sponsored by Darling's of Augusta, Bangor and Ellsworth, and is a partnership between WERU and Wednesday on Main
