This week's Dystopia I presented my humble homage to the songs of the Spanish Civil War, and particularly to the Anarchist forces. These two hours feature many original recordings and beautiful readaptations, with little rants/snippets of history on the significance of songs.
I noted after the show ended that I left out the original of what is perhaps my favorite song ( "A Las Barricadas", the CNT theme to the tune of Warszawianka 1905) from that period, available here for your enjoyment on youtube.
