Please help Utah Phillips
The legendary songwriter, storyteller and humorist Utah Phillips is in need of a heart transplant at age 72. Phillips, whose voice and phrasings carry on the working class traditions of Joe Hill and Woody Guthrie, is a musical link to our nation’s oft-forgotten radical past — a past that includes the fight for an 8-hour workday, for child labor laws, equal pay for equal work, employer paid health care, and pensions. Utah’s only source of income, other than performing and selling Cds, is Social Security. If anyone out there in myspaceland can afford to help this great man, send a donation to U. Utah Phillips, Box 1235, Nevada City, CA 95959.
