Play It Again Marshinvitz
Hosted by David Smash
Play it again Marshinvitz is 20th century soviet music galore. Songs in a language you don’t understand, recorded in a time you don’t remember and in a place you’ve probably never been to.
When the rest of the world had the Beatles, Elvis, Sinatra or Van Halen, the Soviet Union had their own special thing going. State owned record label “Melodia" supervised and oversaw every record made in the USSR. Nothing slipped through the all hearing and all seeing eye of censorship comity. Things became a little more lax in the 1980s and 1990 were completely nuts. Dive into the history of music that never made the actual history in the US. Greatest songs, influential composers, tremendous artists and super talented singers that will never be inducted into any Hall of Fame. Generations grew up listening to this music and it defined the sound of the century. Songs, movie scores, soundtracks, soviet culture, stories… Experience the forgotten on “Play it again Marshinvitz" show only on WSLR.
