Songs for John and Abraham
This week’s program falls between the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address and the 60 th anniversary of the killing of JFK. There’s a genre of songs about presidential assassination, especially about JFK’s and we’ll hear many of these including those written by Phil Ochs, Lou Reed and the Byrds, plus a sampling of tracks from a new album released this week in Dallas called Tragic Songs from the Grassy Knoll. Along the way, a classic folk song about Lincoln’s assassination and a surprising recital of the Gettysburg Address. I learned a lot putting this program together—and so might you!
…and thanks to all of you who generously took part in the KCSB membership drive!
