Peace activist Cindy Sheehan and folk singer Melanie are Tom Needham’s special guests this Thursday at 6 pm on WUSB’s ‘The Sounds of Film.’

Cindy Sheehan is a well-known activist, author and podcaster. She became nationally recognized when her son was killed during the Iraq War, and she decided to set up a makeshift camp outside of President George W. Bush’s ranch to protest the war.

Long Island Music Hall of Fame inductee Melanie is originally from Astoria, Queens. She is best known for her hits “Brand New Key,” “Beautiful People,” and “Lay Down (Candles in the Rain).” In 1969, she performed at the historic Woodstock Festival.
