On the Raddio! —Again!


The Union Edge: Labor's Talk Radio

My second appearance on Charles Showalter’s Pittsburgh-based labor show.

“Musician and Talk Show Host Gary Kanter talks about the farmworker organization Familias Unidos por La Justicia fighting for a living hourly wage at Sakuma Berries Corporation in Northwest Washington.”   (March 30, 2016)

Talked about FUJ and the Sakuma-Driscoll boycotts…though we never did get to “Ballad of Sakuma Farms.”  We did have a nice discussion of and introduced his audience to “We Do The Work.”  A nice plug.


A follow-up visit to talk about and play “Ballad of Sakuma Farms” and the story behind the recording project is scheduled for April 13, 10 am (PDT)



The Joe Show for 3-9-16
I did a live version of “Ballad of Sakuma Farms” on Joe’s show a few months earlier, so it was certainly appropriate to play the just-released studio recording.
Joe continues to be a great friend and voice for progressives and progressive causes in our little corner of the country.

“The struggle for fair treatment for farm workers in word and song with Gary Kanter.”
