    Armed Forces Radio during Vietnam era


      I am an undergraduate student working on a capstone project in American history. According to popular culture, there are many anthems that we claim to be hymns of Vietnam: e.g. "For Whatever It's Worth," "Fortunate Son," "Purple Haze," "We Gotta Get Out of This Place," among many others. I found an article by a noted music historian that claimed the music industry was reticent to produce antiwar music because it was not financially successful. I'm trying to prove this wrong, and I need to have oral histories, sound clips from Armed Forces radio, whatever data I can get my hands on.
