Episode 211

Episode 211 – May 23, 2019

The days are getting darker…but not in terms of the seasons, but more in the sense of what is going on in the halls of Congress, in the assemblies of some very backwards state governments as the hate, mysoginy, and xenophobia continue to be supported at every level. We’ll try to understand (not too difficult, though) the strategies of distraction and deflection on the political bandstand. We’ll hear a vintage collection of protest songs that ask us to study war no more (the true Christian banner). Dylan, Morello, Nelson, and Pete Seeger make the case as we fill in the blanks with new sounds from Rhiannon Giddens, Melissa Etheridge, and something new from Charlie Hunter & Lucy Woodward. A lot more coming your way on Sonoma County Community radio so join in…it’s the wake up call on Thursday mornings.
