"What we need is strength of purpose
To reverse all they taught us
If prejudice is all you learned in school
It's up to us to break the rules
I'll recruit a ragged army
Before I let your hatred scar me
There ain't no justice out there
This is the Lord's prayer
Without each other we're nowhere"

 - Stiv Bators, October 22, 1949 – June 4, 1990

On February 3rd of this year I was interviewed by my favorite podcaster, the great Peter B. Collins. We talked about a few of the songs on my new Red Flag CD. It was a subscriber-only interview, and Peter was kind enough to give me permission to post most of it on my feed. Go here to listen to the full interview (subscription required). A year subscription gets you a copy of the CD.

In addition to subscriber-only content (in-depth interviews), Peter has a free feed where he posts nightly "News & Comment" episodes which is an amazing way to get the news. Throw out your NY Times, Peter B is the place to be.
