On the Phil Ochs topic, knew I had to plug this movie – didn’t realize I already had. You won’t regret seeing it.
I’m in final revisions on the AMA book, so my focus here is shifting for the next five weeks or so; expect to see some musings on the book’s themes, and new stories getting inserted at the last minute. But I’m unlikely to be following the news quite so closely, and there will be silences.
In the meantime, seek out the movie above if you can. Between his traumatized World War II vet dad, his time at military school (see left), and his proud history at GI coffeehouses, one can’t imagine someone better to provide this book with its title than Philip David Ochs.
