Tonight we’re having a wide-ranging conversation with Doug Bradley, a Vietnam veteran and leading expert on the music of the Vietnam War. Doug will tell us why the 1965 hit “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” by The Animals is the unofficial anthem of that war, and we’ll also discuss the role of POGs (“Persons Other Than Grunts”) in Vietnam. Doug is author of We Gotta Get Out of This Place: The Soundtrack of the Vietnam War and DEROS Vietnam: Dispatches from the Air-Conditioned Jungle.
