Sat. 5pm MT –
Where is today’s protest song? It’s a time of political, ethical and moral upheaval.
Songs are being written every hour or every day. Where’s the voice of the artist?
Music has always been one of the brightest lights in the times of political upheaval. Stephen Fearing was one of the early artists to take aim at the then-future president Donald Trump , releasing his Blowhard Nation single back when Trump was still just a nominee. And others have followed.
Terry David Mulligan was right in the middle of the musical revolution of the ’60s – this Saturday, he looks at the parallels between that time and the new Trump era. He asked a dozen artists about what it is like to write music in the new American climate, if there has been a 60’s-style pushback against the president, and if the protest song still has a place in modern music.
Hear the thoughts of artists like Alan Doyle, Bob Rock, Leeroy Stagger, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Ron Sexsmith, The Wood Brothers, Colin Linden, Susan Tedeschi, Joel Plaskett and more as TDM dives into the new wave of political music rising up since the U.S. election, on Mulligan Stew starting at 5pm MT Saturday.
