One of America’s most tireless and wide-ranging investigative journalists, David Barsamian has altered the independent media landscape, both with his weekly radio show Alternative Radio-now in its 32th year-and his books with Howard Zinn, Tariq Ali, Richard Wolff, Arundhati Roy and Edward Said. His forthcoming book with Noam Chomsky is Global Discontents: Conversations on the Rising Threats to Democracy.
Chico Schwall is a folksinger, multi-instrumentalist songwriter and union activist. “Soul Vibrator” plays a groovy fusion of funk-electronica, psychedelic, soul, reggae, rock and jazzy tunes! “Fortune’s Folly” keeps the dream of alt-rock alive with the warm and fuzzy (guitar) feeling of those mid-90s women fronted bands like “The Breeders” and “No Doubt.”
