By Beacon Staff

Montana Public Radio is celebrating the 100th episode of “You Must Remember This” with a special guest: noted journalist and author Tom Brokaw.

The music radio program is hosted by Whitefish resident Allen Secher and features classic and contemporary interpretations of tunes from the Great American Songbook with a focus on the 20th Century. The monthly program has been on the air since 2007.

Secher, who is also a retired rabbi, hosted a radio broadcast on Armed Forces Radio for 30 years and has won seven Emmys for his involvement on various television productions.

The June 6 episode with Brokaw will be an hour-long exploration of the hardships and sentiments felt by the generation that came of age between the 1930s and 1950s. Brokaw has written extensively about what he calls “the greatest generation” and his 1998 book of the same title has been dubbed one of the most popular non-fiction books of the 20th Century. Brokaw was the managing editor and anchor of NBC Nightly News from 1982 until 2004.

The 100th episode of “You Must Remember This” will air on Monday, June 6 at 8 p.m.
