The show also doubles as a CD Release Celebration for the soon-to-be-released WMNF Topical Music Compilation: This CD Kills Fascists. In the tradition of Woody Guthrie, WMNF presents a collection of topical songs by Florida artists about the issues of our times. The compilation includes 21 original songs plus a recent interview with Woody Guthrie's long-time friend, Stetson Kennedy.
