Berkeley “Broadside Balladeer” Vic Sadot song “NO NUKE BLUES” was featured on a popular radio show on the Progressive Radio Network hosted by the esteemed host Sandy LeonVest on March 12, 2013. The archive link is posted here for those who would like to listen to the show:

On this March 12, 2013 on-line radio show, Political Analysis, host Sandy LeonVest airs live audio clips from the March 11, 2011 nuclear meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan. These chilling excerpts, originally made public by Scientific American, reveal the extent of the chaos and panic that characterized the March 11, 2011 disaster – both on March 11th, and in the days following the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan, when the extent of the damage began to be realize. “No Nuke Blues” by activist “Truth Troubadour” Vic Sadot comes along at 22:35 in the 52:42 minute program. Sandy is joined later in the hour by Harvey Wasserman for a discussion on the future of nuclear power, with Sandy worrying that the newly released report coming from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), predicting that nuclear power will continue to grow worldwide, does not bode well for our collective futures, and a more optimistic Harvey arguing that, all things considered, this is a very unlikely scenario.
Here is the link to the free mp3 of NO NUKE BLUES that radio host Sandy LeonVest used to get the song for airplay:
FREE MP3! Use it! No Nuke Blues was first written by Vic Sadot in 1979 about the Three Mile Island accident on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The Crazy Planet Band played at a number of anti-nuclear events and released the song on an LP titled “Ride the Wind” in 1988. That version included a new verse about the nuclear accident in 1986 at Chernobyl in the Soviet Union, now Russia. This acoustic 2012 version has a new verse about the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan in 2011. This version has Vic Sadot on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano accordion. Eric Golub plays violin. This recording was done in Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley, CA with owner Sammy Fielding as sound engineer. Vic Sadot’s official website is www.vicsadot.com
