Pete Seeger Special

Friday May 14th, 12 noon to 1 :30 pm, on "Movin' On," hosted by Don Jacobson

Pete Seeger, who will be 91 on May 3rd, is still going strong. A folk singer, musican and activist, his optimism and faith in the common folk has never wavered. Dragged up before the House On Unamerican (sic) Activites Committee, he was accused of being a Communist and was subsequently blacklisted. Never giving up, he continued to perform where he could. He made a historic appearance on the Smother's Brothers TV program singing "Waist Deep In the Big Muddy" much to the dismay of the CBS officials.

KBOO's newest baby bird flying from the nest, following the footsteps of Pickathon and other KBOO sponsored events that have grown great big wings, flying high and in formation with the Radio Station that sat, incubating the egg, nursing the young baby bird until it was ready to go: InterArts is the newest one I speak of. InterArts is the creation of KBOO producer Sean Ongley and St. Johns business owner Jeffrey Helwig, out of the wake of KBOO's heavy involvement with "No.Fest:Nu.Music.Arts" starting in 2008 with a remote broadcast and 2009 with umbrella status to assist in our fund raising. From that model, InterArts incorporated. The event as it is now forming in to its 3rd realization is focused more on the multi-cultural and interdisciplinary than ever before.
