"I've Got a Song" is a compelling program that depicts the author's childhood experiences of growing up in a leftist family during the McCarthy Era. Complementing the stories is a selection of protest songs that range in style and origin from spirituals to union songs to a haunting love song written for the Rosenbergs. A backdrop of slides completes this living history lesson that spans the mid 1940's through the early 1960's.
