This week we’ll sample records released in the year just past that enriched the culture of protest (or that I think you might want to know about).

These include ‘lost’ recordings made by folk heroes of the past including Phil Ochs and Peter Paul and Mary; compilations of songs from past struggle like the Spanish Civil War; topical songs by today’s conscious troubadours, and songs arising from and/or aimed to support recent mass mobilizations.

Claiming that protest music has died is a longstanding journalistic trope; maybe this show will suggest that this claim is greatly exaggerated.
