A LOT of stories: stories about the music industry, stories about Oakland, and stories about the role of music - and his own contribution - in the struggle for human liberation. Come hear a conversation between Boots Riley and Pacifica radio host Dave Zirin, as Dave tries to get Boots to spill all his stories. Absolutely not to be missed.
