That's the title of one of the great songs by one of the world's leading political troubadours--Leon Rosselson. He's been at work for more than 50 years in England. Over these years he's created a wealth of songs that unearth history and expose contemporary reality--and some that are wonderfully inspiring. Some of his songs help put the current class struggle in England and globally in provocative context. Some continue to shed light on things like the situation in Israel/Palestine, the royal family, communism and Christianity. A new compilation of his life's work has just been issued and I want to explore that on this week's program.
