A Musical Bouquet For Mom & A Tribute To Pete

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

Mother’s Day is Sunday and this is our annual musical salute to moms everywhere — past and present. An 86th birthday salute to Pete Seeger, America’s troubadour, is sandwiched in between program sections for mom. We featured a classic Pete Seeger concert recorded 25 years ago in Cambridge, Mass.
