Show Notes: I did this show as a huge crowd gathered outside for graduation at The Evergreen State College. It was a festive day, and I tried to find music to match. The show ended with a Happy Father's Day wish from Benin's Dénagan Janvier Honfo. Happy Father's Day and Congratulations to all the appropriate folks!

# Our cover song of the week comes from the new Klezmatics album -- it's a cover of Holly Near's "I Ain't Afraid" on religious extremism and intolerance, which takes on a whole new flavor when sung in Yiddish.
