Capital Radio 9-5: Labor Day Edition

Let’s talk about the working man and the working woman this Labor Day with songs from Big Bill Broonzy and Woody Guthrie to the Replacements, The Clash and the Isley Brothers, with three Kinks songs and two from Bruce Springsteen.

From “Working on a Coal Mine” to “Working on a Building” to “Working on a Dream”; from “Get a Job” to “Got a Job” to “Not a Job”;  three separate songs titled “Work,” and an anti-Jerry Lewis Telethon screed from the Dead Milkmen.

Here’s what we worked on to help you enjoy your day off, starting with some brief birthday salutes to bluesman Sunnyland Slim, songwriter John Stewart and Loudon Wainwright III, who helped by writing himself III different songs about his birthday.

Here’s the link to the entire show; the playlist follows:
