In July, 2000, John Williams traveled to Dayton, Tennessee to mark the 75th anniversary of the “Scopes Monkey Trial,” a key legal event pitting teaching the theory of science-based evolution vs. belief in biblical creation. The original trial also marked a moment in broadcast history as it was carried live on recently-launched WGN Radio. WGN announcer Quin Ryan described the events of the trial to radio listeners in 1925, and John Williams assumed that role in a re-creation of the trial in 2000.
