Podcast: Labor Day Special

A Labor Day Special with a hint of political activism. Pianist Guy Livingston introduces us to his upcoming interviewees: pianist Sarah Cahill; composer Dan Moses Schreier; and singer Justin Hopkins. And weaves their stories together with music of Kurt Weill, John Cage, Django Reinhardt, A Winged Victory for the Sullen, The Plastic People of the Universe, and Marc Blitzstein. (of course!)
