Welcome to Radio R&T!



Okay, so not quite an internet radio station, but here's a poor man's way of sharing some fun music with anyone out there who cares to listen.

Back in the 1930's or so American composers were still being steeped in the European traditions of classical music, but one young composer was obsessed with creating something new, an American sound for the classical world to hear.

Aaron Copland looked to old American folk songs and traditional hymns for his inspiration, and over a decade or so of composing almost single handedly created a musical palette that has become synonymous with the American West.

His most famous composition is Appalachian Spring, but there are many others to hear and enjoy. This is a collection taken from 3 of those suites, Rodeo, Red Pony, and Billy The Kid with some "old American folk songs" tossed in for good measure.

So grab your reins and prepare to ride off into the sunset. Enjoy!
