Gustav Brom 100: Hlavní nádraží (Main Station)
From the mid 1990s until 2020, travellers at the Brno main station were greeted by the melody of Brom’s hit “Hvězdy jsou jak sedmikrásky nad Brnem” (“The Stars Are Like Daisies over Brno”). It’s interesting that the idea for this song didn’t come from within the band, but was given to Brom by his friend, poet and former orchestra guitarist Josef Kainar. By the way, for many years the tune was played with a mistake in the third note. The mistake was fixed in 2017 after a tip from jazz historian Jan Dalecký.
