Movin' On on 05/14/10
Pete Seeger Special
Friday May 14th, 12 noon to 1 :30 pm, on "Movin' On," hosted by Don Jacobson
Pete Seeger, who will be 91 on May 3rd, is still going strong. A folk singer, musican and activist, his optimism and faith in the common folk has never wavered. Dragged up before the House On Unamerican (sic) Activites Committee, he was accused of being a Communist and was subsequently blacklisted. Never giving up, he continued to perform where he could. He made a historic appearance on the Smother's Brothers TV program singing "Waist Deep In the Big Muddy" much to the dismay of the CBS officials.
Appleseed has recently released a concert recording of Pete's, recorded in 1965 but never released. A limited number of this double CD set will be available as thank you gifts for your membership. I will also be playing selections from his 60+ albums on this tribute to a great American, Pete Seeger.
