Talk with Ted - A Show About Nothing

Brad Schreiber's introduction to his book, Music is Power: Popular Songs, Social Justice and the Will to Change, states: "Music is sound waves. It is energy made entertaining, mathematics inservice to the human ear. It is power—but not just sonic power or powerin consumer currency or the power to evoke an emotional response ormemory. Music, when it is crafted to address the ills of the world, becomes a special kind of force." Brad joined me from his home in California and we rapped about music  (Joe Hill, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Garcia, Ozzy Osbourne and Rush (of course)), as well as history, politics, social change, Covid-19, symbolism, big money, etc.   I start the show discussing my break from social media, a two month roadtrip across the country and the origin of the term "hippie."

Music is Power: Popular Songs, Social Justice, and the Will to Change w/ Brad Schreiber

Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

On this edition of Parallax Views, can music change the world? Joining us to tackle that question as well as outline the rich history of protest music is Brad Schreiber, author of Music is Power: Popular Songs, Social Justice, and the Will to Change. As Schreiber shows in the fascinating new book, available now from Rutgers University Press, protest music, or as he prefers to call it "socially conscious music", goes far beyond the antiwar anthems and can even be traced back to the early 20th century with class conscious musicians like Joe Hill, a labor activist associated with the IWW (Industrial Workers of the World). In this conversation we discuss artist ranging from Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger to artist you may not have ever considered as political before like bubble pop icon Lesley Gore and the founding fathers of heavy metal Black Sabbath. We also discuss such musicians as the obscure but talented satirist Tom Lehrer, counterculture legend Frank Zappa, "The Godfather of Soul" James Brown, R&B pioneer Curtis Mayfield, and the punk rock of the Sex Pistols as well as specific songs like Janis Ian's "Society's Children" and Peter Gabriel's "Biko". We even talk a little bit about Pink Floyd and their politically outspoken co-founder Roger Waters. All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views. SUPPORT PARALLAX VIEWSON PATREON!

Brad Schreiber Visits Madame Perry's Salon

Madame Perry's Salon

Brad Schreiber is an author, screenwriter, producer, literary consultant, journalist, playwright, teacher, and actor who is prone to see things which aren't always visible. We'll talk about his new book, Music Is Power, which takes us on a guided tour through the past 100 years of politically -conscious music, from Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie to Green Day and NWA. Covering a wide variety of genres, including reggae, country, metal, psychedelia, rap, punk, folk and soul, it demonstrates how musicians can take a variety of approaches—angry rallying cries, mournful elegies to the victims of injustice or even humorous mockeries of authority—to fight for a fairer world.   I'll also ask this seemingly tireless soure of talent and creativity about his other books, scripts, teaching and whatever comes to mind during what I know will be an energetic and fascinating show!
