Anti-War Music & the Viet Nam War

Presented by Erin R. McCoy.

This program offers a brief history of anti-war music in the United States up to the Viet Nam War and further discussion of specific anti-war songs (for example: “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” by The Animals, 1965, is the most remembered song by VN War Veterans) and their historical context. More recent anti-war music will also be touched upon, but in the context of themes & lyrics repeated/re-worked for 21st century wars.
