Resistance Struggle Celebration
Vol 2. – Sugar-free Radio with Dj Nails – Original airdate March 27th, 2021
I’ve been listening to a lot of R&B lately, and this mix captures a bit more of the high-energy side of things, and what is often referred to as boogie. Drums, synths, and soul are really the essential ingredients here, although I could argue those are key instruments in any good song… ~ Dj Nails

Snow Patrol “Life on Earth” Climate Crisis Remix
In early 2019 I was very depressed about the Climate Crisis. I was also in a creative space and desperate to vent my frustration at how we had completely failed to take care of this planet and each other. I was inspired by Snow Patrol’s 2018 song, “Life on Earth”. It hit me hard and really nailed the anger I was feeling.
Turns out I wasn’t alone. Read the full story.

For What It's Worth - The Right to Protest
Buffalo Springfield – For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey What’s That Sound)
Although “For What It’s Worth” is often considered an anti-war song, Stephen Stills was inspired to write the song because of the Sunset Strip curfew riots in November 1966—a series of early counterculture-era clashes that took place between police and young people on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California, beginning in mid-1966, the same year Buffalo Springfield had become the house band at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip. Local residents and businesses had become annoyed by how crowds of young people going to clubs and music venues along the Strip had caused late-night traffic congestion. In response, they lobbied Los Angeles County to pass local ordinances stopping loitering, and enforced a strict curfew on the Strip after 10 p.m. The young music fans, however, felt the new laws infringed upon their civil rights.
