Phil Ochs Documentary - The Sunday Edition on CBC Radio

Phil Ochs Documentary - Our Third Hour this morning is all about the towering talent and tragic life of Phil Ochs.

His protest songs became the anthems of the 60s upheaval in civil rights, poverty and an immoral war.

He was gifted, funny, abrasive, a raging ego-maniac and a victim of severe mental illness.

He committed suicide more than 30 years ago at the age of 35 but a new documentary about his life and work brings him alive again. Michael will talk to the director.
