Up The Hill And Down The Slope! Show tracks for Sat. Dec. 7/13

Of course, the main news of the week was Nelson Mandela passing away at age 95. A hero to most including musicians, many of whom wrote songs about him and his life struggles for peace and equality for all. We open the show in honour of his memory with 2 songs written during his time in jail in South Africa. One may be the ultimate "struggle song" by Special AKA. The other, by Simple Minds, was written for his 70th birthday celebration and is in my opinion one of the most beautiful songs musically that they wrote. RIP Nelson Mandela
