GUEST,Vicki Kelsey Origins/Tune Req: The MTA Song (88* d) RE: Origins/Tune Req: The MTA Song 28 Dec 10


By some coincidence, I just received this from Jonny and Annie Rosen of Annie and the Hedonists. Jacqui Steiner, who co wrote the MTA song with Bess Lomax Hawes gave a workshop at the Pick'n' and Sing'n' Gather'n's Gottagetgon festival in 2009. The song has quite a radical background, as described in the Boston Globe this past Sunday. Sorry, maybe someone can make two "blue clickies" for these links.
