Happy Anniversary, Casablanca!

It’s a tough choice, but if asked to name our favorite motion picture of all time, we’d have to say it’s Casablanca, which premiered on November 26, 1942, in New York City. (You can still visit the theatre where it debuted, but you’ll have to watch the video to learn more about that.)

We rewatched the “La Marseillaise” scene recently, in which a passionate rendition of the French national anthem gives the patrons of Rick’s Cafe Americain a small but satisfying victory over Maj. Strasser and his Nazi henchmen, and though we’ve seen this wonderful movie easily a dozen times (probably closer to two dozen), that scene still gave us chills.

Happy Holidays from Cladrite Radio and Missy

As we were hanging the tinsel on the tree, she says, “Why don’t we have some Christmas music?” And so the holiday season was launched on Cladrite Radio, with just the dozens of toe-tapping classic seasonal recordings added to our regular playlist to make the season bright. Why not tune in now?
