The Border Songs CD is a compilation of spoken word and music addressing the catastrophic effects of US border policy. The CD was officially released October 12, 2012. We hope to raise nearly $100,000 for No More Deaths / No Más Muertes.
The Border Songs CD is available online at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bordersongs. Twenty dollars from each sale goes directly to No More Deaths/No Más Muertes.
Border Songs CD contributors Margaret Randall and Glenn Weyant have collaborated on a new recording of spoken word and sound. Margaret’s poetry is complimented perfectly by Glenn’s ambient sound recordings. For us, it is gratifying to see the artist collaboration continue beyond our Border Songs CD.
Tucson’s community radio station KXCI has been featuring Border Songs on the air. One of our contributors passed a copy along to them. We haven’t really been promoting the CD for airplay yet. But here’s an idea:
Community radio truly represents the very best of radio — local, grassroots programming minus the hype and sensationalism of commercial radio. And you can help make it even better! We don’t have the resources to ship CDs to every community radio station we’d like to have play our CD. Consider purchasing a Border Songs CD and sending it along to your favorite local, community radio station along with a brief note explaining why you’d like them to have it. I guarantee they’ll take notice.
We really appreciate your enthusiasm and support for our project. Let us know if you send a CD to a radio station. Feel free to post your donation in the comments here, or email us directly at [email protected]
It’s for sale online! CDBABY has a limited inventory and the more we sell the better we convince them to keep more on hand and the more we raise for No More Deaths! If you have a moment, be sure to write a review and tell your friends. Thanks!
