Anti-War Songs Absent On Commercial Radio

“Songwriters denouncing war with Iraq are trying to speed up an artistic and political reaction that took years, not months, to gather momentum in the 1960’s. The new antiwar songs are virtually absent from commercial radio stations, where most programmers wouldn’t dream of dividing or alienating their listenership. Instead, songs are arriving from various fringes — on the collegiate indie-rock circuit, in hip-hop’s activist wing and among the heirs to folky 1960’s protesters.”
