Every fourth for the Fourth! What’s that, you say? This Independence Day, join WRTI to celebrate our nation’s birthday with a classical playlist not to be missed from 6 AM to 6 PM. Every fourth piece (at least!) is by an American composer.

Even before "talking pictures," a piano or small orchestra played a key role in the movies.  And long after the era of silent films, the importance of music remains. WRTI’s hosts and arts reporters recount some of the soundtracks and movie tunes that linger.
