iVoryTowerz Radio: Can We Get a Witness?

This week, the underground podcast starts right off with some gospel-infused rock 'n roll, which led us immediately to ask: "Can we get a witness?" That question rings truer as this program progresses through some pointed political sets. In a week infused by politics your two co-hosts (and the official iVoryTowerz radio dog) are definitely in a mood. But besides politics, there's also plenty of rock and modern sounds in this mix, covering almost 45 years of music. The usual eclectic collection is here: folk, folk-rock, alt-country, Americana, blues, grunge, punk, various flavors of heavy metal, avant-garde rock, and even some comedy to leaven the mood. And the political topics covered range from the travesty of Hurricane Katrina to anti-war songs, and even a song dedicated to the human rights movement. This one calls for the appropriate fist pump at the end. Rock on!
