Labor Day Weekend… getting ready for Monday’s Radio Show on WSHC

Monday is Labor Day… a day when we are supposed to celebrate the working men and women that make our country great. However, many no longer remember that we celebrate this day on the first Monday in September, and not like the rest of the world does on May Day. This is because Congress, decades ago, felt that a day celebrating Labor with the rest of the world made it seem that the USA endorsed Socialism and Communism… so they changed the date and for years have turned the meaning of the the holiday to a day off for workers celebrating the end of the summer.

Therefore, on Labor Day I plan on playing only Labor music… songs by Joe Hill, Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger and others.

Here’s a sample:

If you know others you want me to play, get in touch by tomorrow night.
