In celebration of Labor Day, we listen to the music of laborers. We'll hear songs from coal miners, field hands, longshormen, textile workers and other trades, and we'll talk with two folk singers about the history behind some of the great labor songs.
Host: Michael Krasny
- Faith Petric, folk singer
- Pat Wynne, director and founder of the San Francisco Bay Area Labor Heritage/ Rockin' Solidarity Chorus
