Of his next broadcast, host Dick Flacks writes, “This week on the radio we’ll feature a sampling of songs by troubadours of today written during and for the current election campaign–songs that often voice feelings and insights that aren’t easily expressed in standard discourse. And a few that speak to the general conditions within which we contemplate our choices. We’ll hear from some of the leading song-makers–like Springsteen, Randy Newman, Ry Cooder, Ani Difranco and sharp edged satirists in song like Roy Zimmerman and Dave Lippman. And more. Tune in. Vote early. Keep hope alive.”

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