The people are upset, craft stores are running out of poster board, and we are on the verge of a cultural revolution. So the question we must ask ourselves is, what’s your favorite song? When our country’s politics change, so does our music. In this episode I explore the relationship between popular music and social change. Later, I talk to the St. Louis based fusion band, The iLLPHONiCS, about the history of their group and what it means to make good music that has a message. Special thanks to The iLLPHONiCS, The Middle of The Mapfest, and Justin Briggs You can find out more about The iLLPHONiCS at illphonics.net And you can purchase their latest LP “Gone With the Trends” on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp Visit us at djzeitgeist.org for more music that inspired this episode and original artwork courtesy of Laura Ballard
