Subject: Folklore: Paul Stookey & the March on Washington

All this week on The Story, (broadcast on many NPR stations), Dick Gordon is doing interviews with people, known and unknown, about their personal experiences during pivotal events of the civil rights movement of the '60's. I just listened to Paul Stookey tell his story of his experience with performing during the March on Washington with PP&M. Quite a good interview, and some wonderful commentary by Paul on folk music.

Didn't Stookey ask that he be called Noel, his real given name?

It seems disrespectful to call him by the name a record producer asked him to adopt.

I think it's probable that many people only know his first name as it appeared for many years on album covers and concert posters (and still does to this day, with his approval) as Paul. You're right, pdq, his friends do call him Noel, and so do many fans in private conversation, and it's how he introduces himself when you meet him; but onstage and throughout his professional life the group is still called Peter, Paul & Mary, and he still warmly answers to Paul.

I didn't note anything in what he said or in his tone to indicate he felt disrespected.

We cross posted, MK. I had no idea his name was Noel.

One interesting comment he made was something to the effect that an audience doesn't really become an audience until the moment they all realize they have come for the same thing, are clapping for the same thing and are part of a shared experience.
