Jason and The Dumbells

Musician and historian Jason Wilson has a fascination with the First World War. His last album, "The Peacemaker's Chauffeur", drew on that time period for inspiration. Now, Jason has explored the exploits of Canada's WW I army entertainment troupes, known as "concert parties", in a new book. It focuses on the most successful of those groups, The Dumbells. Jason will talk with guest host Mary Wiens about Soldiers of Song: Canada's Famous Dumbells when he joins her on Saturday's show.
