John Philip Sousa, Cincinnati, Tim Linter discussed on Classics for Kids

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Film was born in Cincinnati. He left to play trombone in a circus band, and then came back to Cincinnati to start his own band. By that time, radio had been invented and was bringing music into people's homes. Fill Moore's band was one of the first to do regular broadcasts on the radio. Another twentieth century invention, the phonograph turned out to be the death of the touring bands and John Philip Sousa's side coming. He's the one who coined the term canned music implying that recorded music, like canned vegetables was not as good as the real thing Sousa realized that once people could buy music to listen to in their own homes, they wouldn't go out to hear band concerts and he was right, your attention attention.
