Subject: RE: Pete Seeger on Late Night! Sept. 29, 2008
I fell asleep with the TV on last night, but woke up in time to see Pete. I was half asleep(which half you ask?). Fortunately, She Who Must Be Obeyed watches Letterman, and I had set up to record the show so she wouldn't have to do anything(especially if she fell asleep(we get up around 5 AM), and I just got to watch it again this afternoon with more attention. Pete did his usual great job, despite his vocal problems he put the song over very well and got the audience singing along. The house band even managed to join in at the end, which I thought was pretty good, near as I can tell from his capo position and fingerings the song was in Fmin, modulating to G#. They didn't let him talk with the host, but I guess they think that he can't be trusted to open his mouth except to sing on TV, but he always chooses songs that get his point across.
