Remembering Pete

10 p.m. to Midnight Host: Steve Winters

It’s been one year since American icon and hero Pete Seeger died on Jan. 27 at age 94. Without doubt, Seeger was one of the towering giants in American musical history, especially folk music. His philosophy was simple: “My main purpose is to show people how good it is to sing together.” Or, in other of his words, “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 did that — and a much, much more. In what can only be described as a cursory effort, this show hopes to aid in continuing the Pete Seeger legacy.

The show finishes with selections from three new releases.
