September 8, 2015- Alienation Nation- "When I go back to America, after a few days I am once again filled with this kind of angry alienation and disgust with this thing there that America has got - you have no idea how pervasive it is there. The public relations and propaganda put out by the corporate mono-culture there is so pervasive."
Robert Crumb
Yes, there is folk and topical music about this. It will be featured on WRFG tonight, 8-10 pm.

FOR THOSE WHO LOVE SHAKESPEARE, WOLF HALL, AND STORES ABOUT KNIGHTS, KINGS, ROMANCE, AND LOST AND FOUND LOVE, WE WILL SONICALLY GO WAY BACK IN TIME. ANCIENT INSTRUMENTS, LOST LANGUAGES, AND HAUNTING VOCAL STYLES WILL PAVE THE WAY.

7-22-14 WTF Playlist Israel/Palestine
The holy land is at war again. Tonightís show looks at the politics and music of the conflict between Arab and Jew, including music of both cultures. Included is poetry and music of the complicated politics of the region. You will hear English, Arabic, Hebrew, and Yiddish songs that I believe are fundamentally provocative to us. There will be no answers or solutions, but perhaps we learn more from music and art than than most of our other sources.
