I'm sure all of you know this. But I returned from banjo camp and there are threads on Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Jack Kemp. Yet a true American hero has his 90th birthday and no thread.


Happy Birthday Pete!

Pete Seeger, a very complex guy. Arguably, the most influential American popular musician of the twentieth century.

Here's the one that got censored for a while on the Smothers Brothers Show.

Still rings true.

If I had a dollar for every time I sang "If I had a hammer" as a kid...

Ok It'd probably only be 500-1000 bucks, but that's still pretty good.
