This is viewer supported news

Hundreds of media activists, journalists and musicians gathered this weekend at the Reclaim the Media conference in Seattle. We talked to folk singers Jim Page and Dana Lyon about their music and politics.

Jim Page is a Seattle-based folk singer often cited for his biting political songs. He is in constant demand by the social movements of the day. Philip Elwood of the San Francisco Examiner said Page is "more reminiscent of the Woody Guthrie I heard as a boy than anyone I’ve listened to in the intervening years."

Dana Lyons is a singer-songwriter best known for his hit "Cows With Guns." He is based in Bellingham, WA. Over the past 15 years he has performed at grange halls, schools, community centers, colleges, and nuclear dump sites in virtually all 50 states. His international touring has included tours in Canada, Australia; New Zealand, Siberia; Kazakhstan, and New Jersey.

Guests:

  • Jim Page, Seattle-based political folk singer.
  • Dana Lyons, political folk singer.
