DJ Barnabas needed a little refresh, and took two weeks off, but we’re back this week with a new episode of Community Noise!

We look back on past eras of civil unrest and pull forward great music to learn from and to help us re-gather strength. And on a lighter note, we contiue to use the Seattle Public Libary’s Adult Book Bingo program as prompts for more songs (see prompts in parens in track list below). (Complete a song bingo card over the summer, and win a prize from DJ Barnabas! Get your bingo card at:
