The Progressive Tracks Show #237 (The Unvarnished Thanksgiving), originally broadcast on Friday, November 24, 2017, is now available to download or listen to anytime you desire.

var·nish /ˈvärniSH/

verb   disguise or gloss over (a fact).  

This week we Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, a truly wonderful holiday spent with family and friends.  But how today’s Americans view the underpinnings of this day (the relationship between European-American settlers and Native Americans) has been highly ‘varnished’ over time.

This week’s Progressive Tracks Show pays musical tribute to the Native Americans, while examining the reality of their plight.

PLAYLIST:

  • The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra – “The Theme From The Big Valley” from 100 Greatest Western Themes on Silva Screen Records
  • The Fierce and The Dead – “Chief” from Spooky Action on Bad Elephant Music
  • Barclay James Harvest – “Medicine Man” from Baby James Harvest (Bonus Tracks Edition) on Cherry Red Records
