Hi All,

Today's Labor Day show came from way back in 2005. I figured the songs were still good and hadn't been heard on the show for a few years...hope you enjoyed them.

By the way, very nice to hear Shelley and Tim from Shuffle Function play five hours of work songs on Labor Day itself. Great stuff...

One other thing...there's a cool group out there called the Working-Class Studies Association--the group consists of activists, academics, union folks, and all kinds of others. Check em' out if you haven't already.

Back next week with a new show...
