  • FFRW 7 Belleville Rendezvous Side A Aired: Tuesday, August 13, 2019

    Techo, tierra, pan, educación
    Salud, libertad
    Democracia, independencia

    La piel del jaguar que adornaba
    El suelo, hoy es noble armadura
    De mi pueblo

    Como un feroz guerrero
    Defendiendo la tierra, Zapata vive
    Y sigue en pie de guerra

    Solo un puñado de hombres
    Dispuestos a morirse
    Por continuar la revolución

    A defender la dignidad gritando fuerte
    Tierra y Libertad

    No pasarán de este lugar
    La resistencia ni un paso atrás
    A defender la dignidad gritando fuerte
    Tierra y Libertad

  • FFRW 6 SONIA Side B Aired: Tuesday, August 6, 2019

    My father, his family
    Struggled through history
    Maintaining their sanity
    Wrapped in chains, and in prosperity
    And my sons who may be the last
    Will excend the standards of the working man
    And tear down the barrier
    That separates the caste

    -The Minutemen

  • FFRW 5 SONIA side A Aired: Tuesday, July 30, 2019

    "One of the problems with the idea of addiction is that it is used far too widely and far too loosely, in that it also leaves out the politics. It leaves out the political situation. There are things that are not addictions but that are brainwashing and I think is very important to know the difference."
    -Sonia Johnson

  • FFRW 4 SAMITUVAMcMINNVILLE Aired: Tuesday, July 23, 2019

    The first song is by Mari Boine, a Norwegian Sami musician who puts a modern spin on the Yoiks of her native Sami people who live in the Northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Yoiks are a traditional form of song in Sami music.

    The second song is Tuvan Internationale by Huun Huur Tu who are throat singers from the Republic of Tuva which is located in the geographic center of Asia. 

    The third song is by a band from McMinnville Oregon, where I used to live, called Insofar.

  • FFRW 3 Chanting in Candles and Incense Aired: Tuesday, July 16, 2019
    You might not wanna give me the time of day
    But I've got your little image on my alter anyway
    If I thought love charms and spells would work on you
    Chanting in candles and incense would be all I'd ever do
    When I see your politely smiling face all my well rehearsed lines vanish without a trace
    How can I show you my soft and sinewy grace?
    I know I could win you if I could find the time and the place
    My Queen, Sweet Queen Turn my milk to cream
  • FFRW 2 Hymns to Her Aired: Tuesday, July 9, 2019

    Though Eve was made from Adam's rib
    Nine months he lay within her crib
    How can a man of woman born
    Thereafter use her sex with scorn?
    For though we bear the human race
    To us is given but second place
    And some men place us lower still
    By using us against our will
    If we choose to walk alone
    For us there is no safety zone
    If we're attacked we bear the blame
    They say that we began the game
    And though you prove your injury
    The judge may set the rapist free
    Therefore the victim is to blame

  • FFRW 1 Hims Observed Aired: Tuesday, July 2, 2019
    You'd just say the same old thing
    That you be sayin' all along,
    Just lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut, Till I'm gone.
    Don't give me that old familiar cry and fuss and moan
    I'm tired of your bad-mouthin', Understand your man.
    I been brain-fried, electrified, 'fected and injectified
    Vivisectified and fed pesticide
    My face is all cut up, Cause my radar's all shut up
    Nurse, I need a check-up from the neck up I'm Batty!
    It seems to have no effect, Doctor...
    Get me another one. Get me another animal!
