Of his next broadcast, host Dick Flacks writes, “This week on the radio an hour of song–new songs, new versions of classic labor songs–to commemorate labor day. It’s a good occasion to honor those who do the work and the struggles of the labor movement–and we’re in the midst of a kind of explosion of song performance that help us pay those tributes. And of course there will be songs that tie all this to the rhetoric emanating from the election campaign.”

“Culture of Protest” airs on Thursdays in the summer from 6-7pm.
