seed ... all the legendary heroes of America are this
year coming to life for children in 2,663 schools
through the music of the Standard School Broadcast.
Each week, this program plays and explains good
music for an estimated 400,000 classroom listeners.
Title of the current course is "American Music and
Folklore". .. but over the years, music of all nations
has been studied and enjoyed. Manuals and other
materials are supplied for the use of teachers.
This is the twenty-first year of Standard School
Broadcasts. It is our sincere hope that we have helped
children in the West know and appreciate the music
of the world and understand better its people.
