  • DIY Movement, DIY Media, DIY Music September 17, 2023
    The revolution actually will not be televised.  That hasn't changed.  If we want to build a real, lasting movement, it needs to be well-organized, it needs to produce its own media, and its own music.As Gil Scott-Heron pointed out a long time ago, the revolution will not be televised.  It also will not be streamed on Netflix, or promoted by social media […]

Sharing the Podcast

“It’s not folk music unless the folk are singing it.”

Can a podcast change the world, or at least have a real impact on society?  Yes, it can, is my unequivocal response to that question.  So can music, and many other things.  But only if people hear it.  If you like this podcast, please share it with at least one friend — preferably many friends.  Do you know anyone with a radio show, or who works as a Program Director for a community radio station?  Know anyone who has a podcast, a blog, or who writes for any kind of online or print publication?  Know any producers who work for Pacifica, BBC or CBC?  Anyone who can introduce the podcast to a new audience, whether it’s one new person or thousands of listeners to a popular radio show, podcast or other broadcast, is appreciated — by me and hopefully by lots of other people as well.
