Bumper Music- Let's Work Together!

Greetings friends, patriots, and believers in democracy! The staff here at the Thom Hartmann Program wants to start a "community-style" discussion with you about the show's bumper music! (The bumper music is the music we play when we come back from a commerical break, right before Thom starts talking.) We pick the songs to play every morning with relevence to current topics, news, etc... As you can guess we try to rotate the songs and keep things fresh as possible! We are always updating our bumper music library with more and more songs daily, which brings us to the "Tag You're It" part! If you have any suggestions of music we should play please post them on this blog! Here are a couple things to keep in mind when thinking bumper music: Up-beat (lots of energy), good lyrics, and no cuss words ever!!! We really appreicate your help and creativity. Now... TAG YOU'RE IT!!!

Leave your suggestion in the message boards here...

He's calling it a win for workers.

But who's really going to come out on top?

West Virginia miners or the coal barons who've robbed their state blind?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
