TGS 254-The Rock, Power & Politics Episode


Bruce Springsteen's 4-F card. Joni Mitchell's guitar. James Brown's lyrics on hotel stationery. Bob Dylan's harmonica.

What do they have in common?

They're all symbols of rock music's relentless freedom of expression that can provoke thought and provide social commentary--and they're all part of an exhibit called Louder Than Words at the Newseum in Washington, DC. In partnership with the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Our guest, Patty Rhule, is the director of exhibit development at the Newseum, and she deftly takes us on an audio journey through amazing artifacts, cultural history, the First Amendment, and popular music's ability to speak deeper than the spoken word.

Join us as we explore our right to freedom of expression along with our right to ROCK on this episode of The Tom Gulley Show.
