The Vietnam war ended 43 years ago on 30th April 1975. The war changed East Asian music forever. American troops brought their music with them, local groups would play on and around the military bases in Vietnam, as well in Thailand, Japan, Okinawa and elsewhere, playing rock, funk and other styles. American music was blasted out on American Forces radio, further influencing local musicians, an influence that spread to neighbouring countries. This show contains music made during the Vietnam war in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia, together with news reports, AVFN radio, Presidential speeches, addresses and interviews from Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon, all tracing the course of the war from the early 1960s until the fall of Saigon.
