A Tribute to Pete Seeger


Pete Seeger

Pete Seeger, one of the pioneers of folk music, died this week at the age of 94. He penned iconic songs like “Turn, Turn, Turn” and “If I Had a Hammer”. But he may best be known for popularizing the old spiritual, “We Shall Overcome”. He introduced the song to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957, and it went on to become a civil rights anthem. We revisit a 2012 conversation with Seeger from the “Smiley & West” radio show.
