Good episode? Give it some love!
We think of music and art as bringing us pleasure or entertainment.  But it can also help in -- of all things -- foreign policy.  The State Department has said that hearts and minds can be won through culture just as effectively as through guns of the field.  In this segment, Chief Musician Mike Bayes of the United States Navy Band talks about how music and culture were used during the Kennedy Administration to bring the world a positive view of America -- from Jazz Ambassadors to the creation of elaborate arrival ceremonies at the White House.
