Description: Song #14 of 18 on the Dec 2016 released "Truth Troubadour" CD by Vic Sadot. The original “No Nuke Blues” was written in 1979 about the Three Mile Island accident on the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The song was updated with a verse about the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 in the former Soviet Union. Unfortunately, a new verse needed to be written in 2011 about the ongoing Fukushima nuclear catastrophe. Shut Down Diablo Canyon! We want no more verses to this song! This version has Vic Sadot on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano accordion. Eric Golub plays violin. This recording was done in Robot Envy Studio in Berkeley, CA with owner Sammy Fielding as sound engineer. Here's the Fukushima update verse and the new pre-emptive strike verse to Shut Down the Devil Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant, which was built on the shoreline over earthquake faults like Fukushima in Japan.
