Joe Hill was executed by a firing squad in Salt Lake City exactly 100 years ago. This week’s show is devoted to how his trial, execution, funeral and legacy have been represented culturally, culminating in a musical collage based on “I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night” as well as a number of songs, including new ones, that tell his story.

Tune in for a very good way to observe the centenary
