This is a program of music and reflections produced at KPFA by Ed Schoenfeld on the night of folksinger Malvina Reynold's (August 23, 1900 – March 17, 1978) death. Includes two KPFA pitches by Reynolds. People who call in to share their thoughts on Malvina are Petria MacDonnell reading the epitaph Malvina wrote for herself over a year before her death; Florence MacDonald, Berkeley City Auditor and long time social activist; Tom Bates, State Assembly member from the East Bay; Country Joe McDonald; Mimi Farina; and David Dunaway. Pre-recorded songs played include Little Boxes -- Turn Around -- Mrs. Clara Sullivan's Letter -- Overtime -- World In Their Pocket -- The Plutonium Song -- We Don't Need The Men -- This World. The program's duration is 32:30, followed by a 1 min. 30 sec. song about KPFA called "Bag Pudding" and then a 53-second pitch from Malvina about how important it is to donate to KPFA.
