What songs were popular during the First World War?
This month friend of the podcast Dr Emma Hanna (Kent) returns to talk to
us about popular music during the war. Along the way we discuss who
decided what music was suitable for the troops, the rock and roll
lifestyle of men in the Royal Flying Corp, and which versions
of Mademoiselle from Armentières are suitable to play
to your children.
