Below is a link to a January 28, 2014 NPR program [podcast] honoring ‘musical icon and activist’ Pete Seeger. The 48-minute tribute includes a 2003 radio interview with Seeger.

Guests John McCutcheon (folk singer) and Rob Rosenthal (sociology professor) join “On Point” host, Tom Ashbrook of 90.0 WBUR, Boston, to discuss Seeger’s many contributions as a musician, an activist, and a peace advocate.

[On Point’s host, Tom Ashbrook, “is an award-winning journalist brought to public radio following the attacks of September 11, 2001, when he was enlisted by NPR and WBUR-Boston for special coverage, after a distinguished career in newspaper reporting and editing.”]
