Best Music on an Economics and Politics Radio Show (2008)

BEHIND THE NEWS

You wouldn't expect a program devoted to the analysis of power and money to be peppered with killer tunes, but BEHIND THE NEWS rocks. The show, hosted by author and Left Business Observer editor Doug Henwood, never uses music as on-air filler. Henwood plays cuts—post-punk, Russian pop, out rock—that hit hard. I've never heard a better setting for Gang of Four's harsh grooves and social critique.
