Pete Seeger Shares his Wisdom

Thursday, October 25, 2007

Folk icon Pete Seeger, who rode the rails with Woody Guthrie and wrote protest songs once banned from television, has mellowed over the years. But he's still as relevant as ever, as a new documentary, "Pete Seeger: The Power of Song," reveals. Seeger joins us to talk about music and whether protest songs can still have an impact.

how strange, to hear how honored you were to speak with Peter Seeger, and then to cut him off before he could say "goodbye" or whatever. It sounded to me like you weren't used to talking to people whose egos, unlike most of your guests, aren't inflated to the size of elephants.
