Flames of Discontent celebrates a century of American protest music, and features traditional artists like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Malvina Reynolds, Holly Near, Mavis Staples, and Utah Phillips, as well as more current ones like Ani DiFranco, David Rovics and Roy Zimmerman. It is folk at its core, but also includes relevant rock, blues, gospel and even hip-hop.

The playlist is organized thematically, with songs from labor, anti-war, civil rights, environmental, gender equity, and other movements for social justice grouped to help tell a story. Interested in a different theme? Wait a while until it comes around again on the guitar…

Democracy is best when participatory, and so is this station. Please provide feedback, rate songs to let us know what you like, and suggest songs and artists to include.

The late Utah Phillips said that a "long memory" is the most radical idea in this country. This station is dedicated to him, in the hopes that wisdom gained in struggles of the past, and captured in its music, will help inform the challenges of today.

Peace
