Exploding Head Movies Episode July 28, 2014

XHM #224 - "Once there was a July crisis" (2014 July 28)

7:00pm - 9:00pm

100 years ago today, the First World War started, so this episode gets its war on with some films about the Great War, vintage wax cylinders and other flim-flammery.

I listened to over 6 hours of music from the First World War for this episode; the music hall style is quite jaunty, which makes for an interesting contrast to the horrors of the trenches.

Riverboat, ring your bell. And leave your message after the beep.
Eyes right!
