Pete Seeger in 2000: Can Music Move a Mountain? | Radio Open Source with Christopher Lydon

Pete Seeger performing on February 13, 1944, at the United Federal Labor Canteen, with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt in attendance. In 2000, Chris interviewed the legendary folk singer Pete Seeger, who died today at 94. Here is Pete Seeger on “The Connection.” As Chris noted in introducing him, Pete Seeger wrote and popularized folk music for over 60 years. He always used his voice and his banjo for a purpose. He never sang a song that didn’t have meaning. His convictions about social justice were deep, and his performances changed lives. There’s little doubt the FBI had a huge fat file on him back in Washington, and for his liberal politics he was the target of mob attacks too. He sung anti-American songs in Moscow, and was at one time banned from television. He continually inspired other people to action to stop the Vietnam war, to fight racial inequality, and to save the world.   Leave a Reply Cancel reply http://www.radioopensource.org/pete-seeger-can-music-move-mountain/

Woody Guthrie: this important music figure would be turning 100 today. - The Music Show - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

The unconventional folk hero and vagabond troubadour Woody Guthrie was a prolific writer who famously emblazoned his guitar with the slogan 'this machine kills fascists', as he spent his relatively short life telling myriad American stories in song. On The Music Show today we’re celebrating Woody Guthrie on the centenary of his birth, in an interview with Robert Santelli, author of a book called This Land is Your Land: Woody Guthrie and the Journey of an American Folksong, which looks at the life of Woody Guthrie through the prism of his most famous song, a song which became an American anthem, and now transcends generations and nations. Supporting Information: Music excerpts in this segment from 'This Land is your Land', Comp. Guthrie, from the Asch Recordings, Vol.1; and the Lincoln Memorial concert in 2009. Complete tracks: Do re mi Comp. Guthrie Perf Woody Guthrie CD: This Machine Kills Fascists, Woody Guthrie Snapper Music Boxed set SBOX0009 God Bless America Comp. Berlin Perf.

Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX - Running

dawnrecorder.org is a music blog written by a few dudes. We do the hard work and gather an eclectic mix of top-notch tracks and package them all nicely for you. No genre limitations here-- we just love music. Jamie XX remixed Gil Scott-Heron‘s 2010 album “I’m New Here“. When I first heard that, I thought “who cares?”. I hadn’t really listened much to either one. This album isn’t even out yet and it’s an album-of-the-year contender. Holy crap. “Running”, like many of tracks on “We’re New Here” is a heavy head-nodder that would feel just as comfortable up in the club as it would in your headphones at work. Also, as someone who makes music, that bass drum sound kind of gives me a boner. “We’re New Here” comes out February 22nd. Please, for goodness sake, preorder here. http://dawnrecorder.org/
