iVoryTowerz Radio: Pete's Birthday Show

Happy birthday, Pete Seeger! Pete Seeger turns 90 tomorrow (May 3), so what better time not only to play some Seeger but also to play some music inspired by one of America's great folk singers. There's plenty here to like, although not all of this program has the Seeger touch; the usual eclectic mix is here. (But we dedicate the program to Pete, among others, nevertheless.) The program ranges through folk, indie rock, new wave, power pop, and heavy metal. Plus the sounds cover about 40 years of modern music. So tip your hat to Pete, and, of course, enjoy.
