Of the next broadcast of “The Freak Power Ticket” (Monday, November 25th), producer/host Ted Coe writes: “Today we’ll share a mix of humor, satire, sentiment, and the deadly serious, reviving a series tradition with a left-wing revisionist infomercial about the Thanksgiving holiday.
We’ll hear: instructional-film platitudes from the 1950s; an Arlo Guthrie classic from an unexpected source; dark humor from the Beat Era icon William S. Burroughs; tough lessons in U.S. history from Howard Zinn, political-prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Native American activist/scholar Ward Churchill; material from Jim Jarmusch‘s classic anti-western film Dead Man and the late Antonia Bird‘s Manifest Destiny horror-satire Ravenous; holiday blues and R&B from Louisiana Red and Andre Williams; Beach Boys outtakes and a Johnny Cash rarity; a Woody Guthrie cover by indigenous punk band Blackfire; and a Black Friday set brought to you by Adbusters, Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, Reverend Billy & The Church of Stop Shopping, and The Jam.
The Holidaze are fast approaching. ‘It’s Thankstaking time again, Charlie Brown!’”
“The Freak Power Ticket” airs on Mondays in the fall from 11am-12noon.
