#EmailFromAmerica - The American Civil War

ZoneOneRadio's illegitimate ex-pat son Zeff presents #EmailfromAmerica - your weekly missive from across The Pond.

On this week's show, Zeff finds himself at a Civil War re-anactment.

Download from iTunes or listen on demand...

There are bands, soldiers, a battle, and a big cannon.

Zeff meets the men of Virginia Company H, Capt John Douglass of Stribling’s Battery (they of the big gun!!), and there’s music from the Federal City Brass Band.

Great American music this week from Spoon, Panama Wedding and Edwin Star.
