35. Simple Pleasures

There used to be a fun radio program on WETA on Sundays in the DC area called Songs for Aging Children. One Sunday they played an entire episode (2+ hours) about Phil Ochs. I’d never heard of this singer-songwriter before this radio program introduced me to his music, but immediately went out and bought his Pleasures of the Harbor album. Later I bought the CD version of I Ain’t Marching Anymore.

Pleasures of the Harbor has a number of good songs – in fact I like them all.

I love Phil’s voice – it’s clear and lovely. I love his words – topical at the time they were written, and still mostly true.

Sorry – no links. Check out samples on Amazon.com though.
