Music played during the show (especially during in-tro and out-tro) has been an evolving element. In the beginning back in late 1999/early 2000 or so, canned 'public domain' clips gave something... Then we got a Free Radicals CD and encouragement to use it on the air free from Houston musician/activist Nick Cooper, so we used several cuts from that pretty exclusively for a year or so. Then on KPFT's Democracy Now! we heard "Is It For Freedom" by Sara Thomsen, tracked her down and got permission to use that song, so did and still do upon occasion. We also play songs from GASCD, including:

Bruce Cockburn "Call It Democracy"
Propagandhi "Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes"
Michael Franti "Oh My God"
Rheostatics "Bad Time to be Poor"

Get this excellent double disk set! (GASCD: Governments Accountable to Society and Citizens = Democracy; thanks, Susan and Allan in Ontario, for turning us on to this.)

And we're looking to air tunes from Green Revolution when/if Sudden Death responds.

Listen up for David Rovics, Dave Lippman, or you never know who might show up live in the studio—Darryl Cherney did once...

Come on down! Our show ends at 9:30 PM, and a short, topical song might fit in real nice to close the show.
