December 3rd, 2009 by WSLR 96.5 LPFM

When: Friday, Dec 4, from 9 to 10 a.m. EST
Where: The Surreal News on WSLR 96.5 LP FM

The Surreal News welcomes singer-songwriter, author and labor activist Tom Juravich, who recently released a new roots-rocking musical CD and a book sharing the same name: “Altar of the Bottom Line.”
Using two different media mediums, Juravich paints intimate portraits of the everyday struggles and dreams of workers.

Tom Juravich began singing professionally about work and labor back in late early 1980s, in the middle of the first wave of plant closings in the U.S. His first album, “Rising Again” was sponsored by the United Auto Workers in 1981.
He went on to record “A World to Win,” of which Edward Clark, from the clothing workers’ union wrote: “Your songs smell to me like thread, cloth, factory machine oil, social justice and creative genius.”
His album “Out of Darkness: The Mine Workers Story,” became the soundtrack for a film about the coal-miners’ union.

Surreal News hosts Steve and Larry along with Author David Swanson will also take a look President Obama’s plans to escalate the war efforts in Afghanistan.

Each episode of The Surreal News features “A Tannen Weekly” by humorist Pete Tannen, a Media Matters Minute and plenty of under reported news items.
