"If these folks were still producing songs like they did in the late 60's and early 70's- would anyone care, would anyone listen?"

Let's not forget that in the late 60s and early 70s, folks elected Nixon twice. It's easy to overestimate how many people were listening, back in the day. Ochs, I think, was quite well-known on the coasts, but hardly a household name in middle-America. Paxton was probably better known for Last Thing On My Mind and Rambling Boy than for We Didn't Know and Lyndon Johnson Told The Nation.
