Music to commemorate 9/11

September 8, 2011 – The 10th anniversary of 9/11 is only three days away, and it will likely be an emotional day around the country, especially for those who lost loved ones.

New York City’s public radio station WNYC is asking listeners to tell them what songs they’d like to hear on Sunday afternoon in honor of the solemn occasion. The broadcast will also include listener’s stories about how 9/11 affected them.

Submit your choice here, and listen online on Sunday afternoon at www.wnyc.org/popup_player/# to see if your song or story made the cut.

Even if you don’t make a suggestion, take a peek at the choices already submitted; they are great. I second the nomination for Paul Simon’s American Tune. Powerful lyrics and very fitting for the occasion.
