The Golden Voice of the Great Southwest

In my last post, I mentioned folk singer and activist, the late Utah Phillips. There is a remarkable interview with Mr. Phillips on YouTube. Mr. Phillips was one of a kind, a pacifist anarchist story-telling activist folksinger. Check out the interview (it is in 5 parts but part 5 is no longer available):
part 1
part 2
part 3
part 4

Part 5 was probably banned by the government...him being a pacifist anarchist and all....okay...I watched too many X-Files...

ya, I seem to recall hearing one of Utah's stories about a time when he knew his phones were being tapped. He called his partner and said, whatever you do don't dig in the garden, that's where the guns are buries. When he got home the veggie garden was all dug up for him courtesy of the feds... Har!
