Rob Rosenthal (one time UCSB grad student) and I have just published a new book. It’s called Playing for Change: Music and musicians in the Service of social movements. He's currently editing a book based on Pete Seeger’s unpublished writings. Rob's a sociologist (now at Wesleyan U) and a musician--some years ago he produced several albums of political song with other Santa Barbara musicians. He's in town this week. We'll talk about our book, which includes interviews with some leading politically minded troubadours and we'll listen to some of their music. The list includes Ani di Franco, Dar Williams, Chuck D, Tom Morello and Billy Bragg. Tune in for possible edification and surprises.
