Host: Andrea Young

Theme: Music about politics or peace

The midterm elections are right around the corner. Songs about politics don’t seem to ever be about peace too. Join host Andrea Young for an hour of favorite politically themed songs, along with some songs about peace and love and ‘we can do it’, because after all, the political process could sure use some of that.

Featured Lyrics:

Frail Grasp on the Big Picture
Written: D. Henley and G. Frey

Light fading and the fog is getting thicker
It’s a frail grasp on the big picture
Dark ages”
