By mail, by ballot box, by pulling a lever, or pushing a button on November 3rd, Americans will exercise their democratic right to vote for President, Senators, Congresspeople, and, in many local elections, for legislators and judges to mosquito control officers and dogcatchers. It’s a big one folks! So we’ve created a soundtrack in words and music to get you to the polls. With jazz and gospel takes on American anthems; cool versions of civil rights songs like “If I Had a Hammer” and “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free”; blues treatments warning “Be Careful How You Vote!”; a soul variation on “This Land is Your Land", and songs about revolution… and restraint. It’s time to face the music and vote!
American Routes airs Fridays at noon on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Download the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes & Google Play!
