I hope you’ll participate in the fund drive. In return for your generosity, I’m offering copies of some shows that may be of interest, signed copies of my new book on music and movements…and a brand new album of political song by David Rovics.
Remembering Rosa and Abe: features interview with Rosa Parks (its her centenary) and songs about her + the complete Lonesome train—the legendary radio cantata musically depicting Lincoln as an embodiment of grassroots populism
Remembering Paul Robeson: a program featuring Robeson;’s voice throughout the decades and his passionate speeches challenging racism and empire.
- Remembering FDR: Roosevelt’s second inaugural in its entirety makes interesting comparison with Obama’s + songs about FDR you might not know.
- Obama and King: Pres. Obama made a stirring speech dedicating the MLK monument—and we couple that with some fiery words of King’s plus songs that honor him on the King holiday.
- We’ll play samples from all of these on the air this Thursday and next @ 6-7pm pst 91.9fm (www.kcsb.org)
- Or…we have a couple of copies of David Rovics new CD: Meanwhile in Afghanistan.
- Or…we have a couple of copies of my new book: PLAYING FOR CHANGE:MUSIC AND MUSICIANS IN SERVICE OF SOCIAL MOVEMENTS—co-authored with Rob Rosenthal.
“Culture of Protest” airs on Thursdays in the winter from 6-7pm.
