Leon Rosselson interviewed on KBOO


"The great English chanteur just turned 84, and talked by phone from London on "Rise When the Rooster Crows"

From a full immersion in the early British "folk revival" (four albums with The Galliards from 1960-62 and two with The Three City Four, which included Martin Carthy, 1965/67), as well as in the beginnings of British television satire (That Was the Week That Was, hosted by David Frost, ran from 1962 to 1963 and featured some of his early satirical songs), Rosselson emerged out of the 60's as one of the English-speaking world's preeminient "topical" songwriters. His wit, passion, intellect and radical politics combined with a well-honed musicality and songcraft to produce a  large body of work that has provided an inspiring soundtrack to several generations of the politically and socially engaged."—Paul Roland

Donald Rooum on The Final Straw Radio Podcast pt 1 of 2

 

"This week, we invite you to listen in on the first part of a conversation we had with 90 year old anarchist, cartoonist and author, Donald Rooum. Donald was born 1928 in Bradford, UK. Donald is most known for his longtime illustration of the wiley, bomb-throwing, firebrand anarchist cartoon character, Wildcat. In this episode, Donald talks about his early political trajectory and development from childhood involvement during World War II in a Communist Party front group into anarchism via the speakers corner in Hyde Park. Donald talks about the Malatesta Anarchist Club, his artistic development and love of cartooning and engagement with activism to stop corporal punishment in schools in the U.K. and ideas about social change and anarchist intervention."
