With a difference today! To mark the 10 th Anniversary of a day when the world would never be quite the same again. How that song throughout the ages protested or celebrated events as observed by the author of the song – which were carried through the oral tradition down the ages and thankfully continues today .
I take a brief period of time and a particular publication ‘The Best of Broadside 1962 -1988’ – holding the protest songs that I ‘lived through’ – A gift that was given to me by the members of the wonderful Star Club in Glasgow for my 50 th Birthday in 2001 . I was very lucky on this date as it was my first trip to the USA! I did not get there on that day as we had to turn back! (but did get out the next week !)- I send a thanks and greetings to old and new friends – so sing along to some ‘well kent sangs’ – and some new ones to you! Enjoy! ‘Auntie Liz’
