A KNSJ TRIBUTE TO PETE SEEGER

 

By Martin Eder

January 28, 2014 (San Diego)--Legendary folk singer, activist,  environmentalist, leftist, songwriter, and troubadour extraordinaire Pete Seeger passed away on Monday, 27 January, 2014.

This very weekend, KNSJ held a tribute concert to  Pete Seeger thanks to our invitation of George Mann, who joined us in this musical retrospective celebration of his life. We may have been the last sing-along event of Pete's songs, while he was still alive. As part of the audience, we were uplifted by his spirit and words: "If I had a hammer, I'd singing in the morning, I'd sing it in the evening, all over this land... It's a song of justice, it's a song of freedom, it's a song of love between my brother and my sister all over this land, all over this land..."

Tuesday morning, Amy Goodman and Democracy Now spent the bulk of the broadcast celebrating the life and contributions of Pete Seeger and his cultural activism. Listeners were reminded just how important the programming of our new community radio station is to our values and our information, knowing that KNSJ is the only local station to be honoring Pete Seeger today. This tribute is but one of 1,000 reasons why we need a strong and vibrant, and culturally poignant people-powered radio.  Listen to the podcast on DemocracyNow.org at http://www.democracynow.org/2014/1/28/we_shall_overcome_remembering_folk_icon?autostart=true  including interviews with Pete Seeger and video of him in concert.
