Does anyone have this - it deserves to be brought into the public domain.

The Unity Singers were part of an international network of peace activists. On a unique disc from 1960 held in the Turnbull Library collection, Unity Singers member Rudy Sunde can be heard performing ‘Talking Radiation’, a talking blues adapted from Pete Seeger in which he asks ‘How would you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island’? Christmas Island was the location, near Kiribati, where the British had tested hydrogen bombs in 1957 and 58.

Many thanks.
