Bernie Gilbert has been writing songs for 40 years. He has a back catalog of three-minute harangues about industrial disasters, corporate malfeasance, and the deficits of the two-party system. In January 2011, the “Western Workers Labor Heritage Festival” conferred on him the “Labor Arts Award.” Asked why, Bernie said, “I don’t know. I’m guessing that large bundles of bills changed hands.” Bernie is an active member of the Bay Area Rockin’ Solidarity Labor Chorus, and he’s been a member of the Freedom Song Network since 1984. Hali Hammer hosts. Our open mic is held the second Friday of each month.
