The great labor bard and martyr Joe Hill was executed on a dubious murder charge by a Utah firing squad on November 19, 1915. He instantly became a worldwide icon who 'never died'. Tonight on the radio we feature a recent musical work: Joe Hill: 16 Actions for Orchestra, Voices and Soloist. It's a kind of cantata that dramatizes the Joe Hill story interwoven with some of his songs.
