The final show in a series of four that explore mostly contemporary folk music on political issues of import to us all

Join host Diane Hunt in the final show of folky political songs that put to music the debacles that are facing our country today.   We'll hear about "mitchtakes," "snake oil men," "social distancing," "why Republicans hate trains," and, of course, "mean-talk."  There will be some fun in this final political punch, so do find your way to here....       And then pray that Diane will never have to do a series of FOUR shows on these topics ever again!
