Happy Birthday Phil Ochs!  More Than A Small Circle of Friends, show 3 / December 17, 2015

Fifty years ago Phil Ochs played at a small coffeehouse in Kew Gardens, Queens, New York called The Interlude Cafe. To celebrate his 75th birthday, Joel Landy organized a musical event at Odradeks Coffee House, the new name for that old space. It was an evening of free music performed by talented artists including David Massengill.

The space was filled with Ochs fans who came to remember Phil Ochs and sing along. It was a magical evening and a sweet neighborhood event.

The video here is the third of four shows edited for the Songs of Freedom Television program. It features Lydia Adams Davis and Richard Benson.

It was a pleasure to host the 2018 Funny Songs Hour at the New England Folk Festival. This is the first of two Songs of Freedom episodes recorded and edited after the annual spring NEFFA event.

This year's Funny Songs Hour was memorable for its performances and energy. My favorite part was the "Lightning Round" at the end, a frenetic flurry of quick zingers. Tune in and see for yourself.
