iVoryTowerz Radio: The Political Special

After more than eleven months of promises/threats, the underground podcast goes as far underground as possible with a show that combines political opinion with rock 'n roll from start to finish. But there's more than just political rants for 90 minutes. The usual eclectic mix is here to please, but of course with a political edge. This podcast covers more than 40 years of sound from soul to folk to punk to alternative and symphonic metal. There's comedy too, plus a few new protest songs leavened into the classic mix. Put on your helment. Button your chinstrap. And cinch up that flak jacket because this program is filled with incendiary commentary and the music to match. What better post-election fare can you get for a country still suffering from a campaign hangover? Drink this one in deeply and, of course, enjoy!
