We start this show by continuing last week's Joe Farrell feature. Then, reflecting on last week's surprising and disturbing election results, we play some protest songs, both vocal and instrumental. Gil Scott Heron, Les McCann/Eddie Harris, Charlie Haden are among those represented in this set. The show ends on a more optimistic note with McCoy Tyner, Fly with the Wind.
