Vic Sadot was born in Ridley Park, Pennsylvania in 1947. He lived mostly in Newark, DE after age 5, and he graduated from Newark High School in 1965. Vic studied Political Science, French, and English Literature at the University of Delaware starting in 1965. He graduated in 1969 in the midst of major protest upheavals and a climate of questioning that was happening all over the country. It was a rude awakening to the political reality of wars for corporations to plunder the resources of less powerful countries. Yet much of the learning came from listening to a new wave of topical folk music coming mainly out of Greewich Village in New York City with the likes of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, and many others living the legacy of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger. Before that, Vic’s favorite singers were people like Elvis Presley, John Lennon of the Beatles, and commercial pop culture.

Vic moved to Washington, DC in the summer of 1969 to work for the Mobilization Against the War in Vietnam. Vic volunteered at Georgetown University’s WGTB student radio, where he was asked to interview his political folk-song hero, Phil Ochs, in May 1973 when Phil was doing a week-long engagement at The Cellar Door. Phil had just returned from travels in South America and Watergate was beginning to undermine support for the Nixon administration. The 1973 interview by Vic Sadot and Rich Lang was a free download at the Phil Ochs tribute and memorabilia site known as No More Songs dot com.

In addition to learning songs in the pages of Broadside magazine, Vic began to write his own topical songs and got some of them published in Broadside. In 1982, when the editors of Broadside magazine in New York City obtained over 400 pages of FBI files on Phil Ochs by using the Freedom of Information Act, Vic was assigned to write and break the “Phil Ochs FBI File” story on the cover of Broadside. The 1982 article is available on-line at Broadside Balladeer Blog.

In 1985 Vic formed a folk-rock band with his brother Rob, and they released a 45 rpm single of the Chuck Berry styled “Good Time Delaware” with an anti-imperialist rocker called “Born To Win” on the B Side. Vic Sadot led the Crazy Planet band from 1979 to 1997. He led the Planète Folle “Cajun/Zydeco” band from 1997 to the summer of 2008. Vic moved to Berkeley, California in the autumn of 2008 where he began to record new songs and released “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” on 9/11/11, the 10th anniversary of that tragic and politically pivotal false flag event.

Vic began making music videos for his own songs in 2009. “Cheney's in the Bunker”, “The Ballad of William Rodriguez” and “Mad Cowboy Disease” were the first three. Now Vic has over 25 videos on the “Truth Troubadour” YouTube Channel.

Cynthia McKinney invited Vic Sadot to sing his truth song about the 2004 overthrow of democracy in Haiti at her April 25, 2013 book-tour stop in Santa Rosa. The video of that performance can be seen on line as “The Kidnapping Coup”. Earlier, Cynthia wrote a review of Vic's “9/11 Truth & Justice Songs” CD. She said, “Not only have I found in Vic a new friend who understands my passion for what is right, I've found someone who knows how to artistically communicate the critical issues of our day.”

Vic Sadot writes in 3 blogs: (1) "Broadside Balladeer Blog" on political folk songs; (2) "Berkeley Calling Blog" on the living free speech tradition of Berkeley and the Bay Area; and (3) "Truth Troubadour" on 9/11, media lies, and “deep politics”. Vic's latest blog at Truth Troubadour is a review of Kevin Ryan's ground-breaking new book, “Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects”, which is also posted at in our blog section.
