Share your own or others’ new
or old songs about politics; choruses and humor encouraged.
Political songs are efforts to persuade through humor, satire, or
enlisting the heart. Come with a song (hopefully with a chorus) to
share, sing along with, or just listen to our collective political
music, old and new. Bringing written lyrics to share is always fun,
and if your song is a long one, leaving out a few verses will ensure
that everyone gets a chance to share. Got a song about housing, or
spotted owls? We would love to hear it.

Radio Berkeley's original clandestine crew, is the creator and
satirical newspaper, "The Pepper Spray Times", and is

"Politics and song served friendly as breakfast"...
