Host Rob Sachs talks with Brittany Peterson, who interviewed the singer Patricio Manns.
40 years ago today was a dark day in Chilean history as the military overthrew their democratically elected socialist President Salvador Allende. As a result of the coup, many of Allende’s supporters were forced into exile. They included Patricio Manns, a well-known singer of ballads. Manns was a former journalist whose music reflected the dreams and upheaval of the time period.
