Phil Ochs (singing/playing) - I Ain't Marchin' Anymore
Phil Ochs (singing/playing) I Ain't Marchin' Anymore
Single (Elektra), also released on many albums 1966 Soul
Soul Ochs wrote "I Ain't Marching Any More" as American involvement in the Vietnam War was beginning to grow. The song criticizes all of American military history from the perspective of a weary soldier who has been present at every single war since the War of 1812. The chorus notes that "it's always the old who lead us to the war, always the young to fall" and asks whether the price of military victory has been too high. Ochs said of the song that it "borders between pacifism and treason, combining the best qualities of both." He also wrote "the fact that you won't be hearing this song on the radio is more than enough justification for the writing of it."

Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2020
We’re looking at 20 to 28 million people facing eviction between now and September. Making folks homeless in a pandemic is just a flashpoint of this country’s affordable housing crisis. People have to fight their evictions “virtually,” since housing courts are closed—and if you don’t have that fast internet, or don’t get on that Zoom call properly—that’s “failure to appear,” and you lose. ... And as a new report begins: “Housing is healthcare.” Also on this show: What—and who—is driving the push to privatize the post office—and how have they had managed to shift the conversation?

Ramblin' Boy Rhino/Elektra
This classic cut was spun for a mid-show music break. "Civil rights leaders are a pain in the neck; Can't hold a candle to Chang Kai Shek; How do I know? I read it in the Daily News. Ban the bombers are afraid of a fight; Peace hurts business and that ain't right; How do I know? I read it in the Daily News. Daily News, daily blues; Pick up a copy any time you choose. Seven little pennies in the newsboy's hand; And you ride right along to never, never land. ..."

If you just can't wait till 2008* to say NO, NAY, NEVER. It ain't a reach, we can still impeach THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER.' [* Original target was Bush Jr.]
