April 30th--Seeger and Springsteen

Hey everybody,

This week's show focused on Pete Seeger and the good Mr. Springsteen. Before I get to the playlist, here are a few interesting works from and about Pete Seeger.

**Pete Seeger wrote a wonderful letter to Seventeen magazine back in 1963. I pass this along to people whenever I can. Love the start..."Dear Fellow Humans"

**Here's Seeger's testimony in front of the House Antiamerican Committee back on August 18, 1955.
