Billy Bragg interview: "I can't watch Question Time anymore — it's like the Coliseum"

Ian Winwood, Daily Telegraph, 18 September 2019

ON THE SONG 'Old Clash Fan Fight Song', a bash-em-out deep cut from the Fight Songs album of 2011, Billy Bragg sings of "a mate who lives in Vermont" who, in response to the Lite Beer format of American radio, starts his own little station. Soon enough "he's on the air each day telling folks about a different way" while spinning discs that include "Billy Bragg and a bit of Green Day".
