WBAI Radio’s Building Bridges:
Your Community & Labor Report – National Edition
Produced & Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
Presents David Rovics
David Rovics is one of the best political songwriters in the English-speaking world today. His songs are a powerful musical challenge to the status quo. they are so effective because they are both politically sharp and contain beautiful poetry.
Join Building Bridges and songwriter David Rovics as we use music to ready ourselves for the New Year and continue to maintain and build a social movement. Since the mid-90s Rovics has been spending most of his time on tour, playing At concerts and rallies around the U.S. and Canada and various countries in Europe. Rovics is a musical tribune for the campaigns and
struggles of our times. While the world’s rulers are waging the so-called “war on terror”, Rovics is writing songs from within the heart of the US empire exposing and challenging its “war of conquest”.
Since we first discovered Rovics, our enthusiasm for his music has grown. The folk-music scene has traditionally had a left-wing stream within it, which
is what we like about it. Rovics doesn’t avoid taking a clear stand in favor of justice for the oppressed and dispossessed, he cuts to the heart of the
injustice, but it gets better – it’s the creative way he gets his messages across. Rovics is expert at including very radical ideas in his songs in a way
that doesn't come across as doctrinaire or even especially radical.
One particularly notable aspect of Rovics' music is his revolutionary optimism — something the progressive movement could do with more of. Several songs are infused with the confidence that we will ultimately win
and that things will be so much better when we do. “After the Revolution” sketches a vision of victory. Another is “Resistance”, which includes the
chorus (addressed to the rulers): “There will always be resistance/The next battle will always be near/As long as you have everything/There will be those who have nothing to fear/And little by little, or maybe all at once, you will lose/Because our future is not yours to choose.” Taken as a whole, Rovics' music is revolutionary, inspiring, hard-hitting and sometimes
humorous. If you like left-wing music, you will like David Rovics.
