Episode 2 of They’ll Never Keep Us Down, originally aired October 1, 2012 on Trent Radio.
The very first episode of They’ll Never Keep Us Down, my program on Trent Radio every Monday at 6:30pm.
Introducing the show, talking about Joe Hill and the folk songs of the IWW.
I’ve been learning autoharp for the past 6 weeks or so. For Woody Guthrie’s 100th birthday on July 14th, I recorded this quick and dirty cover of his “I’ve Got to Know”. Poor recording, and amateurish playing, but an accurate document of where my autoharp playing was a month ago.
I’m not sure that I’ve advanced very much since I recorded. If I find the time, I’ll knock out a handful more tracks like this and toss them up here.
Was attempting some writing on the ‘harp tonight, but kept coming back to Hazel Dickens songs. OK.
