Show 076 – Labor Day Special (2019-08-31)

posted in: Past Shows

In this hour, we focus on labor, the labor movement, and the men and women working the backbreaking jobs that keep the world turning. We only have one instrumental piece this time, which means a bunch of songs about work. Some of the work is pleasant and fulfulling, some…not so much, and there’s a song comemmorating the job.This week, we feature songs from Eoin Duignan, Molly’s Revenge With Moira Smiley, Fortunate Strangers, Andy M. Stewart, Calico, Dick Gaughan, Dervish, Ann Kirrane, John Doyle, Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh, Len Graham, Chulrua, Dublin Gulch, and Solas.
