I've just found this splendid audio documentary about Pete Seeger.
Scroll down and click on the two Real Media links at each of the two dates.
Producer and Seeger biographer, David Dunaway (Across the Tracks: A Route 66 Story; Writing the Southwest),
produced this acclaimed documentary, Pete Seeger: How Can I Keep From Singing?, last year. This year, in
celebration of Seeger's 90th birthday, he has redistributed the piece and permitted us to make it available here
on the Talking History Web site.

Pete Seeger: How Can I Keep From Singing, Part 1 ~ Origins
This week we bring you part 1, "Origins," where Dunaway tackles the question of "How did a Harvard-educated
boy become a radical, hitchhiking, banjo-playing, political activist? Program I explores Seeger's youth and America's
folk revival of the 1930s and '40s." In two weeks, we'll bring you part 2, exploring the folk music revival of the 1950s
and '60s and Pete Seeger's important catalytic role in that revival.

Pete Seeger: How Can I Keep From Singing, Part 2 ~ Ballads and Folksongs
This week we bring you part 2, "Folk Songs and Ballads: Bringing Folk Music Alive," where Dunaway explores "the
exciting folk music revival of the 1950s and '60s. It starts at Seeger's first musical group, The Almanac Singers, who
sang labor, peace songs and anti-Nazi songs in 1941. The story continues as Seeger formed the Weavers, a best-selling
musical group in the 1950s, before being blacklisted. Throughout controversy, Seeger promoted folk music from many
American traditions, a musical Johnny Appleseed. The musical emphasis here is ethnomusicological, on old-timey
banjo tunes and on pop-folk crossover songs of the Weavers ('Kisses Sweeter Than Wine,' 'Goodnight Irene')."
