Ronnie Gilbert & Judy Small (1986)

One from the archives, from a cassette supplied by Jim Lesses.  The legendary RONNIE GILBERT (The Weavers et al) toured Australia with JUDY SMALL in 1986, playing the Arts Theatre in Angas St on July 10 of that year.  While in town, they were interviewed by a few announcers from both 5MMM (Three D) and 5UV (Radio Adelaide). The result was then played on the show sometime in August.

Jim introduces the interview, which then leads into stories of The Weavers, being blacklisted, learning Spanish, the importance of music in activism, and much more besides. The respect each artist has for the other is very clear throughout the conversation.
