Vietnam Blues - Airs May 26

Monday, May 26 is Memorial Day. And we've got the perfect slice of radio for you to honor America's veterans.

Vince Gabriel is a Vietnam veteran who's written an album of songs chronicling his experience of the war. In this documentary, called Vietnam Blues, he takes listeners back to 1968, to the jungle of Vietnam. Vietnam Blues was produced by Tina Antolini, a reporter at WFCR in Amhert, Mass.

Here's what reviewer Whit Richardson wrote about Vietnam Blues: "I am a big fan of this piece. The production was smooth and seamless. Vince Gabriel's intimate narration paired with his music and lyrics was a very powerful method for telling his story. I was drawn in and remained absorbed throughout."

Vietnam Blues airs at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 26 on KFAI, 90.3 FM Minneapolis and 106.7 FM St. Paul.
