This show is part of our ongoing coverage of topics relating to Maine's bicentennial.

This includes music from: the Wabanaki and Passamaquoddy tribes; a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Walter Piston of Rockland; the country’s first superstar teen idol, Rudy Vallee; country music stars Donald Doane, Sr., and the Katahdin Mountaineers; folk music pioneers such as Mellie Dunham; Hermann Kotzschmar and the Merrill Auditorium organ named in honor of him; and many more.
