Another musical tidbit from the fair: one of John Philip Sousa's marches, the "Minnesota March," had its world premiere at the fair, 80 years ago almost to the day.
To hear the march, tune in tomorrow (Saturday) for Alison Young's show from the fairgrounds, starting at 10 am. You can also read about Sousa and his march, complete with behind-the-scenes tiffs, here.
