The Atheist Lyricist Who Put the Rainbow in the Wizard of Oz

A relaxing Freethought Radio looks at the irreverency and artistry of one of America’s most revered songwriters, the atheist Yip Harburg (Somewhere Over the Rainbow”). Retired scientist and engaging unbeliever Ernie Harburg talks about his own rejection of religion, the progressive Yip Harburg Foundation, and his father’s “Rhymes for the Irreverent.” Tantalizing clips of many of Yip’s famous songs airs during this new interview, and Ernie reads some of his father’s freethought poems. The show also features a “Theocracy Alert” update.”
