As the Bush administration gears up for war against Iraq, artists and musicians are taking a more prominent role in giving voice to antiwar sentiments throughout the world. There will be a massive anti-war rally tomorrow, January 18th, in Washington, D.C. If the rally of October 26th is any indication, hundreds of thousands of people will come from around the country and the world to say, "Not in Our Name."

The British band Chumbawamba will perform live at the peace rally to express their outrage at this proposed "pre-emptive" strike by the President Select. Four members of the band have joined us in the studio, obediently providing musical interludes, and now we would like to give them a chance to speak.

Guests:

  • Alice Nutter, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
  • Boff, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
  • Neil Ferguson, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
  • Lou Watts, with the British band, Chumbawamba.
