All week KRCL celebrates the songs and stories of U, Utah Phillips. Joe Hill was executed in Salt Lake City on Nov. 19 1915. His death inspired a generation of labor organizers to not mourn but "organize!".  In this cut Utah Phillips collaborates with Ani DiFranco to tell the story of the late radical activist and Wobbly.
