for Karen and Charlie

12_smallCharlie King is one of the best political troubadours of our time. His work has been on Culture of Protest playlists since our earliest broadcasts back in 1982, and we’ve been proud to facilitate appearances almost every year since.

His long time partner in life and in performance, Karen Brandow died last week. And just a few months ago, Charlie and Karen released a two –cd compilation drawn from his 40 years of writing and singing.

We’ll remember Karen Brandow—and honor Charlie’s work—this week on the radio, listening to a selection of their greatest hits. Please tune in! You will smile through some tears.
