License To Vote

We’ve waited four years so there’s no need for any more hopes, prayers, or incantations. Our way of American life is on the line. The choice is ours. As our image says: “Vote as you please, but please vote.” We’re kicking off the five day countdown with a collection of music featuring political songs, songs about voting, democracy, freedom, and civil rights; ; all of which are currently threatened by this administration and its sycophants, traitors, and rats. We’ll hear from Steve Goodman, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Bob Dylan, The New Christy Minstrels, and (of course) Roy Zimmerman, all of whom touch on one or more of our topics of the day. We’ve got free speech, no bull radio here in Sonoma County and Deeper Roots will take this Friday out to use a bullhorn to ask that you go out and vote, for heaven’s (and democracy’s) sake. We need to turn this ship around and this is our best opportunity.
