Phil Ochs, one of the great political troubadours, would have turned 75 on December 19, had he not tragically died by his own hand in 1976. His 75th is being celebrated with concerts around the country, and two new albums have just come out. To honor Phil—we’ll sample the new records, one is of Phil on the radio in NY in the sixties, early in his career, the other a tribute album by young folks born after he died, doing his songs. Meanwhile, John Trudell, legendary Native American organizer and cultural figure died last week. In his memory, some of his song-poem performances.
