On the radio this week we celebrate Lincoln's birthday, featuring some classic musical works honoring him--works rooted in the progressive cultural front of the Depression. We'll hear the once popular but now rarely performed Lonesome train by one time Santa Barbarian Earl Robinson, as well as Copland's Lincoln Portrait. And in addition, some tracks from Chimes of freedom, Amnesty International's just released blockbuster tribute to the work of Bob Dylan. And finally the voice of Ruthie Foster, the blues/ soul artist who appears in town Friday.
