In view of several threads on the above topic recently I thought some of you may be interested in a UK radio broadcast.

Starting tonight (Nov 8) on UK BBC radio 2 at 10pm GMT there is a series about protest songs. I guess each programme will last 30 mins but I didn't catch how long the series runs.

UK listeners can get it by switching to radio 2 between 88 and 91 on the FM band. Overseas can listen on the web on www.bbc.co.uk/radio2

I will miss it myself as I have just taken the music machine in for repair. (suppose I could sit in the car... nah - not that interested myself!)

Anyway, enjoy

Cheers

D the G

And the BBC have a little quiz.

"You know the songs, but what were they written in protest against?

From the Jarrow Marchers to the Civil Rights Movement in the States, protest songs have a special power to move, inspire and educate.

Take The Protest Songs Quiz to test your music knowledge. "
Nine questions.
