“Culture of Protest” host Prof. Dick Flacks says of tonight’s broadcast:

“One time Santa Barbarian Earl Robinson was a major composer of politically conscious music, including “I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night” and ‘Black & White”. This month marks the 100th anniversary of his birth and the 19th anniversary of his death. His biographer, Eric Gordon, will be my guest on the radio this Thursday for a 2 hour retrospective of Earl’s work and life. I guarantee that you will be surprised, intrigued and inspired by the music and the life story (which provides an intimate insight into the nature and cultural effects of the McCarthy period blacklisting).”

“Culture of Protest” airs Thursdays from 6-7pm on KCSB.
