Mozart's Attic Sunday February 19th: George Washington's Birthday

Union College says it recently stumbled across a surprising find in its archive: a lock of George Washington's hair.

It’s Washington’s Birthday next Wednesday, and even though George no longer gets a legal holiday to himself these days, we’re going to mark the occasion with some music from Colonial and Federal America on this Sunday’s program.

Sunday evening at 6:00 p.m on WFIT 89.5 FM, streaming at WFIT.org or ask your smart speaker to play WFIT.org.

He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
