Radical Music: Christy Moore

program date: 
Mon, 03/28/2011

 Today's show was peppered with selections of Christy Moore's music, including a fairly complete cut of Ordinary Man. Joe talked with Brad at the end of the show, and due to an engineering error we experienced almost 40-seconds of dead-air. It's been edited out of the online version, but we apologize if you endursed it live. Brad highlights Moore's internationalist taste in the music he covers and the causes he sings about, like Viva la Quince Brigada,but also the class-consciousness of songs like Ordinary Man.
