Roy Zimmerman is Completely on the Radio

You might not know who Roy Zimmerman is, but if you listen to Ask an Atheist you have heard Roy Zimmerman. Roy Zimmerman is a perpetrator of musical satire: known for songs with a definite liberal bent. Positively reviewed by the LA Times, Tom Lehrer, and Joni Mitchel, he’s also performed for the freethought community, including the “Rock Beyond Belief” concert for atheists in the military in 2012.  This episode is a bit larger than normal– we’ve encoded in 128k.

After the show, Roy will be performing at Northern Pacific Coffee Company at 5:00 PM.   Come join us!
