XM To Recreate D-Day Coverage
May 29, 2007 at 7:50 AM (PT)
XM SATELLITE RADIO will recreate NBC's coverage of the D-DAY invasion of NORMANDY on JUNE 6, airing the archival NBC reports and material from NBC's original broadcast schedule from 12:41a ET JUNE 6 (the time of the original bulletin) through 5:45p ET JUNE 7. The coverage will air on XM's "THE 40S" channel 4 and will include music from the era and archival reports from NBC's H.V. KALTENBORN, MERRILL MUELLER, and others.
"Once we discovered that this material existed, we felt we had an obligation to bring it to XM listeners," said PD MARLIN TAYLOR. "No one else would undertake such an endeavor and it is our role to keep the music and history of this era alive and available to those living in the 21st century."
