THE FUTURE OF THE PROTEST SONG

Rex Fowler, along with his duo mate, Neal Shulman, have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk/rock duo, Aztec Two-Step. After taking their name from a poem by beat poet, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, they have written love song and songs of conscience.  Rex Fowler reflects on the protest songs that have inspired him and the impact they have had as  the soundtrack for various movements such as anti-nukes, civil rights, women’s rights, anti-war and now in ‘the resistance’, as its called.  We sprinkle music into this podcast in order to demonstrate their power and form.
