One time Santa Barbarian Earl Robinson was a major composer of politically conscious music, including "I dreamed I saw Joe hill last night" and 'Black & White". This month marks the 100th anniversary of his birth and the 19th anniversary of his death. His biographer, Eric Gordon, will be my guest on the radio this Thursday for a 2 hour retrospective of Earl's work and life. I guarantee that you will be surprised, intrigued and inspired by the music and the life story ( which provides an intimate insight into the nature and cultural effects of the McCarthy period blacklisting).
