In this episode of MSG10, we are joined by musician, radio presenter, and activist Chris Thorpe-Tracey for a freewheeling look at Protest songs through the early 20th Century. And if you go to our website at infrequency.co.uk, or our Mixcloud at mixcloud.com/tempfans you also get to hear the tracks by Paul Robeson, Bob Dylan, Roberta Flack , and many more.
We cover issues including unions, the Vietnam War, Jim Crowe era racism, and The Catholic Church. We also ramble a little bit, get distracted but it was a fascinating and fun chat.

Our theme music comes from the always excellent Jonathan Fisher
