Our guest this week on Art of the Song is the legendary Canadian-American folk singer, educator and activist, Buffy Sainte-Marie. Although Buffy’s music today is far from traditional folk, it embodies the anti-war and native rights sentiments that were prevalent in the sixties. Her music was blacklisted by the FBI during the Johnson and Nixon administrations. Despite the setback, she persevered with her music and teaching, and found a new venue, the children’s TV show, Sesame Street.

Top intellectual property and entertainment lawyer Peter Afrasiabi joins Suzanne Lang in conversation on his recent book Burning Bridges, America’s 20-year Crusade to Deport Labor Leader Harry Bridges. Bridges was an immigrant, a longshoreman, and a labor leader which was not a good combination in the 1930s. The imbalance of executive power in the federal government of that time resonates with our contemporary situation.

This week on Ric on the Radio: Lesser-known British Invasion. Mention the British Invasion and the groups that first come to mind are The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, The Kinks, and maybe The Zombies, The Dave Clark Five, The Hollies, and Herman's Hermits. But what about The Honeycombs, The Hullabaloos, The Fourmost, or The Big Three? The Merseybeats, The Ivy League or The Liverbirds? Beyond the household names, the British Invasion consisted of dozens of other bands who never made it past their regional scenes, or had hits in England but never made the Atlantic crossing.
Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Nashville singer/songwriter Phillip LaRue. Phillip nearly lost his ability to play music after shattering his elbow in an accident. His arm was barely functional, and he endured an extensive recovery period, having to retrain his muscles to play guitar. Phillip LaRue’s commitment to music and being able to play guitar again kept him fighting - and pushed him to fully commit to a career in songwriting. He has since solidified himself as an in-demand songwriter in Nashville.
