WFHB will participate in this year’s International Clash Day with a full day (6am-5pm, excluding news programming) of broadcasting music by the Clash, related bands, and other artists expressing themselves on themes of protest, social justice and equal rights.
SEATTLE, January 31st, 2018 – On February 7th, 2018, music lovers all over the world will observe International Clash Day, an annual celebration of seminal UK punk band The Clash, and a recognition of the enduring influence of their music and human rights message.
This year, city governments, radio stations, record stores and music venues on all seven continents will mark the occasion with special programming, spotlights, official city proclamations and more. A constantly updating listing of all of the participating organizations and communities, along with downloadable International Clash Day posters, shareable graphics and more are available at www.internationalclashday.com.
“Know Your Rights,” the first single from The Clash album Combat Rock, is a biting take on the civil rights of the poor and disenfranchised, and serves as a prime example of the Clash’s unique ability to blend social commentary, activism, and incredible music. On February 7th, the music of the Clash will serve as the soundtrack to the hard work, resolve and commitment to upholding and advancing the values of a free society and an inclusive world.
