R.I.P.: Irwin Silber

There was a time, not so long ago really, when the Left actually made a difference, not only politically, by fielding an army of citizens passionately determined to make the lives of ordinary people better and by providing the intellectual foundation and institutional muscle behind progressive change, but also by helping to shape popular culture. The passing of folk music champion Irwin Silber this week gives us a chance to look back on an era when a group of avowed lefties like The Weavers, for example, could be stars.

Here's an interview with Silber from 2002.
