Pete Seeger, 1919 – 2014

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

“My job is to show folks there’s a lot of good music in this world, and if used right it may help to save the planet.” – Pete Seeger (2009)

“My main purpose is to show people how good it is to sing together…. I also wanted to show how there could be continuity as well as variety, as we circle a subject and then try to zero in it on it. Usually by the end, as audience and singer get warmed to each other, we make some good music — at least the audience does, and I’m proud to be their song leader. – Pete Seeger (1980)
