Berkeley Phil Ochs 75th Birthday Tribute playlist - Please share it! - Vic Sadot

Hello 9/11 Truth Friends! I hope you enjoy political songs as much as I do. And I hope that they inspire you to continueworking for truth and justice to prevail in the years to come. Fellow 9/11 Truth singer-songwriter Richard Ochs flew all the way from Baltimore to be with us in Berkeley, California to celebrate the 75th birthday of Phil Ochs. Richard says he is not related to Phil except in also loving topical social justice songs. Richard sang "9/11 Some Luck" to the tune of "Whiskey in the Rye" and "Homage To Phil" to Phil's tune of "When I'm Gone". Richard was number 5 of 16 performers on 12-19-15 in Fellowship Hall. We did a live stream on Concert Window. Later I was able to download it and edit out much of the set up work time in between the performers, also to add performer names, titles and credits.

May you all have a great new year in 2016! Don't forget to include 9/11 Truth songs in your 9/11 Truth programs
Pete Seeger
 explained why when he said:

A singing movement is a winning movement. We're putting a world together before it blows itself apart. Over the years you'll find the magic made by the right song at the right place at the right time. Musicians can teach the politicians. It's fun to swap the lead. Musicians can teach the planners – economists, engineers, lawyers: plan for improvisation! Our greatest songs are yet unsung! Rise up singing!" -

Seasons Best Wishes & A Great New Year To All of You!

Short video of Vic Sadot singing at the San Francisco Federal Reserve on 12/23/13 (3:34posted by Fifth Mike-Bridges at Mike 5 YouTube Channel – Featuring the Fantastic Fresno Light Brigade! I get a little nostalgic when I see that San Francisco trolley car all lit up with Christmas lights and it stops and becomes an awesome backdrop for these lyrics!: “Illuminate the Fed! Yes, that's what we said! You terrorize nations! Far and wide! We're here to tell you! You can no longer hide! Illuminate the Fed! Illuminate the Fed! I pledge with my heart! And I pledge with my mind! To help make the history that leaves you behind!”
