Vintage Pete Seeger

We listen back to a previous interview with the folk singer and political activist Pete Seeger. He wrote or co-wrote "If I Had A Hammer," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Turn, Turn, Turn." He also made popular dozens of other folk songs, many of which appear on the latest Bruce Springsteen album, We Shall Overcome:The Seeger Sessions. This segment originally aired on Jan. 25, 1984.
