Escape Velocity: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing on Mushroom Escape

I missed it by just under a year. I have spent most of my life wishing I could have been around to witness the moment when Eagle landed at Tranquility Base on July 20, 1969. I've read every book I could find on the subject, I've imagined the excitement that surely must have been felt around the world, and now it's time to mark that occasion with some very special programming on Mushroom Escape.

So this Saturday, July 20th, we will be doing just that, with a full slate of programming all day to mark that momentous event's anniversary. It all starts at midnight Eastern North American time. We will be airing the twelve-part documentary "To The Moon", which chronicles the Apollo program. After that, we will be reairing CBS coverage of the launch, the landing, and subsequent moon walk. Experience, or re-experience the moment as it was witnessed then by Walter Cronkite of CBS News.

We'll be rounding off the day with some space-related movies, all described, of course, for your listening enjoyment.

So please join us this Saturday, July 20th, all day long (Eastern North American time) for this very special coverage of the fiftieth anniversary of one of mankind's proudest moments, only onMushroom Escape.
