An Unknown Legacy: The 1840 Election and Political Campaign Songs

Last fall Trax on the Trail joined forces with Prof. Emily Abrams Ansari’s Music and Politics class at Western University in Ontario. Each student penned an essay or created a podcast that explored a specific intersection between music and presidential politics. Last month we posted an engaging podcast on the 2004 John Kerry campaign by Western student Nikki Pasqualini. Today, once again as part of our #tbt series, Trax is excited to introduce its second podcast from our neighbors to the north. Listen and learn about about the campaign of 1840!
