Harrumph: Goes to

Harrumph:

Goes to credibility:

With the station manager at his side the host said that wrote the song Strange Fruit--wrong!

Hosts being accurate or inaccurate affects the creditability of the station.

Morning mix--shame:

"Strange Fruit" is a song performed most famously by Billie Holiday, who released her first recording of it in 1939, the year she first sang it. Written by the teacher Abel Meeropol as a poem, it exposed American racism, particularly the lynching of African Americans. Such lynchings had occurred chiefly in the South but also in all other regions of the United States. The writer, Abel, set it to music and with his wife and the singer Laura Duncan, performed it as a protest song in New York venues, including Madison Square Garden.

Harrumph,
