Episode 179 – Oct. 4, 2018

Tom Waits’ music is our focus today, including a new track from the album Songs of Resistance 1942-2018. “Bella Ciao” was an Italian folk song adopted by the Italian partisans in their stand against fascism. An appropriate topic for the day. And it’s always good to hear from Tom who we heard from last in his visceral cover of Blind Willie Johnson’s Soul of a Man a couple years back. There’s plenty of new releases, including sneak peeks from Mark Knopfler, John Hiatt, Rosanne Cash, and the very voice of resistance these days, Roy Zimmerman. Tune in on Thursday mornings on Sonoma County community radio.
