program date: 
Mon, 04/02/2012

Tom Becker talks with our radical musicologist, Brad Duncan, about Alix Dobkin. They reflect on her "red-diaper" up-bringing, her recent autobiography "My Red Blood: A Memoir of Growing Up Communist, Coming Onto the Greenwich Village Folk Scene, and Coming Out in the Feminist Movement", and her impact on feminism and women's music through her politically infused folk-music.

The following links are to music of hers we heard on the show:

  1. Every Woman Can Be A Lesbian
  2. Lesbian Code
  3. The Woman of Your Life
  4. Hearts and Struggles
