8/24/2008 Womenfolk


Preparing for the Democratic National Convention this week and the Republican National Convention coming to St. Paul next week, I thought I'd play some political tunes to get us in the mood for the impending circus. If you missed it, you can check it out the archived show below. Big thanks to all of you who called and requested songs!

Next Sunday tune in for Women's Work, a Womenfolk Labor Day special only on KFAI, people-powered radio! -efs.
