“Culture of Protest” host Prof. Dick Flacks says of tonight’s broadcast: “The great labor bard and martyr was executed on a dubious murder charge by a Utah firing squad on November 19, 1915. He instantly became a worldwide icon who ‘never died’. Tonight on the radio we feature a recent musical work: Joe Hill: 16 Actions for Orchestra, Voices and Soloist. It’s a kind of cantata that dramatizes the Joe Hill story interwoven with some of his songs.”

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