This week, marking the President’s state of the union speech, a program featuring songs by contemporary troubadours that serve as a commentary on what Obama did and didn’t say. This year’s speech coincides with the anniversary of FDR’s ‘four freedoms’ SOTU address—which Obama observed by raising ‘four questions’ (we’ll hear FDR articulate his vision), and it converges with MLK birthday (which will be appropriately incorporated).
