Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Power of Song-PBS, Feb 27
As to referring to the man in the past tense -- I recently saw an excellent four-part program, The Legend of Liam Clancy, with very much the same past tense thing going on. As it ended, Clancy walked to the front of the room and with a broad smile said, "It sounded like a eulogy, but I am still here," or words to that effect.
The Pete Seeger program was wonderful and the only complaint I have is that it wasn't long enough.
I looked for Mike Seeger -- wasn't he a member of the New Lost City Ramblers? They were shown briefly. I am sure a lot we would love to have seen was filmed but wasn't shown due to length.
