David Rovics is a gifted, anti-empire singer-songwriter, whose voice needs to be heard by China Rising Radio Sinoland fans. Today’s interview with him is penetrating, very enlightening and at times funny.
Host Jeff J. Brown loves Mr. Rovics’ music and admires and respects his message. He hopes you will check him out. To help in that endeavor, he picked seven of David’s songs, each one covering a particular theme or subject, as points of conversation.
