Pete Seeger

Hey Folks,

I was up in Northern Wisconsin over the 4th and heard an excellent interview with Pete Seeger. The interview came from Democracy Now and was aired by a great community radio station, WOJB

It's a full hour giving the kind of history and context Springsteen should have provided in his new work.

Here's a link to the interview
