Houston’s First-Ever City Song Took Some Liberties with History

Back on March 7, Preservation Houston donated the restored original city flag to the City of Houston Public Library; in honor of the occasion, the men of the Houston Saengerbund sang the exhumed city song. A month later, the men recorded the song at the KUHF studios on the campus of the University of Houston, as part of a Houston Matters segment on the history of the flag and the song. Well, the segment finally aired on August 16. You can listen to the segment here.
