Every four years we struggle through a mighty upheaval. We elect a new chief executive through a very convoluted process that has me both angry and proud. And once a year we set aside a government holiday to celebrate these leaders who have inspired us and represented all of us as a group. Since this is one of those tumultuous years where we place a special spotlight on the President of the United States, our show this week will program music that honors the chief executive.
