Great Depression Protest Songs

program date: 
Mon, 01/18/2010

 In times like these -- times like the 1930s and 40s -- a tradition of protest music emerges that sings from the viewpoint of working people and people who can't find work.  Last week's show was about contemporary rap music.  This week, we feature music from the Great Depression by the likes of Pete Seeger and Josh White. These musicians consciously made music that touched on many aspects of the growing working class movement: unemployment, Jim Crow and lynching, union organizing, anti-fascism, etc.

Gremlin Time
program date: 
Mon, 04/20/2009

Walt Curtis from KBOO's The Talking Earth, reads this excerpt from Jack London's book The Road. In which, London talks about hobo lore, living outside of society, and his own experiences as a hobo at the end of the 19th Century.  

Back in April of 2009, we had also decided to dedicate this story to the memory and music of singer and poet Utah Phillips, by using a few of his ballads about railroads and hobos, as dramatic counterpoint to this story about railroads and hobos by Jack London.  "One of the few American writers who really knew how to write" - H. L. Menckin
